Our Philosophy

We, at Fantails, see ourselves as a large extended family embracing whānau tangata (parents, educators, children and the wider community). 

We integrate a bicultural perspective; providing all akonga (learners) with opportunities to develop knowledge and understanding about the heritages and aspirations of both partners to Te Tiriti O Waitangi. Te Whāriki, the National Early Childhood Curriculum, is the foundation that encourages kotahitanga (holistic) learning and development and on which we base this philosophy.

We are a welcoming place where children and whānau belong. Where the diverse backgrounds, values, traditions and capabilities of those within our learning community are embraced, celebrated and reflected in our unique learning environment. A place where ngā hononga (relationships) is fostered and valued and where we provide an environment of whakamana (empowerment) which allows our children to develop to their potential and be healthy in mind, body and spirit.

Our goal is to provide quality education that will have a significant and lasting impact on children's kotahitanga (holistic) development. Our aim is that when children leave our centre they will be competent and resilient learners secure in their sense of belonging and in the knowledge that they make a valued contribution to society; and have a love of learning that will continue throughout their lives.

Dated: June 2018

How do we do it?

We see the environment as the third teacher and have set up Fantails to meet the varying developmental levels and learning needs of each child.

All children have the opportunity to experience a rich environment that encompasses tactile experiences, literacy and numeracy skills, outdoor play, sand/water/carpentry, block building, family play, puzzles, art and much more.

Children choose the areas that interest them and teachers support these interests and learning through discussion. These discussions often lead into the recording of learning stories which are kept in individual children's portfolios.

Our high number of caring qualified staff is there to ensure that during the time your child is at Fantails they receive high quality education and care that is tailored to their individual needs. To help us achieve this we have a high number of educators to the number of children present.
