We are a welcoming place where children and parents belong, where values of people from different cultures and different abilities are accepted and respected.
We integrate a bicultural perspective giving all children the opportunity to develop knowledge and understanding about the heritages of both partners to Te Tiriti O Waitangi.
Te Whariki, the National Early Childhood Curriculum, is the foundation that encourages holistic learning and development and on which we base this philosophy.
Our goal is to provide quality education that will have a significant and lasting impact on children's overall development.
Our aim is that when children leave our centre they will be more competent learners, confident and secure in their sense of belonging and have a love of learning that will continue throughout their lives.
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.
