About Us

Philosophy

At Natures Cove we are committed to developing respectful relationships and value open communication with our tamariki, whanau and kaiako.  We understand that family and whanau are a significant part of learning success and we encourage a partnership to support the best development possible.  We appreciate that every child is unique and strive to provide the best quality care in an engaging and inclusive environment, allowing our tamariki to thrive.

We encourage tūrangawaewae (a place to stand) by opening our gates which blends both outdoor environments together as one.  This invites all children to build on tuãkana/tēina relationships, sibling interactions and kaiako relationships from both centres.  Our teachers are both a partner in learning and a facilitator in the process of holistic development.  Kaiako work and learn alongside the children, ensuring Natures Cove is a home away from home for our tamariki. Warmth, trust and aroha are woven into the fabric of our philosophy, empowering our tamariki to become confident and capable learners.
