Our Philosophy

We, at Fantails, see ourselves as a large extended family embracing uara whānau (family values).

We integrate a bicultural perspective; providing all ākonga (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 holistic learning and development and on which we base our philosophy.

We are a warm and welcoming place where children and whānau (family) 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 we value and foster ngā hononga (relationships) and provide an environment of whakamana (empowerment) which allows our children to develop to their potential; fostering their overall sense of well-being through their physical, social, emotional and spiritual health.

Our goal is to provide quality education that will have a significant and lasting impact on children’s development. Our aim is that when children leave our centre they will be competent, resilient and secure in who they are; knowing that they make a valued contribution to society and will continue to have a love of learning throughout their lives.

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.
