Tena koutou Whanau,
Nau mai haere mai and welcome to Natures Cove Preschool room, Ngatai Road. We have a 1 to 7 ratio in our room, which means at the most we will have 21 children and 3 teachers at one time and the age range is 3 years to 5 years old.
We believe that children need a stimulating environment that is full of exploration, giving them a chance to learn skills for life through play.
The children will experience an environment that promotes independence and self directed learning as they navigate freely through all areas both inside and out.
We believe in allowing children the freedom to explore the world around them, free from interruptions giving then the time for their creative mind to develop.
We believe school preparation begins from birth. School readiness is about the skills, knowledge and attributes children need to be successful learners in all areas of their development, including their physical, emotional, social and cognitive aspirations.
In preschool we provide an environment which is developmentally responsive, challenging and stimulates children’s natural curiosities about the world around them. The activities and experiences provided celebrate the arts, nature, science, music, mathematics, literacy, social relationships and much more. We believe the essence of a child’s development and love for learning is developed through play and a balance of spontaneous and directed activities that celebrate your child’s interests.
