Our Philosophy

When you enrol at Kiddie Academy, you will enrol your child with a centre where we value the bi-cultural heritage and history of Aotearoa / New Zealand and will foster your child's understanding through our early childhood curriculum, that follows the Te Whaariki early childhood education guidelines.

We respect and incorporate all cultures and uphold the Treaty of Waitangi.

We believe that the best educational outcomes for your child are achieved through ongoing collaborations between family / whanau and the teaching team, we value the responsive and reciprocal.

We provide a safe and challenging environment for your preschool child, that is rich in quality resources where the children have opportunities to play while extending their developing knowledge for life-long learning.

We promote consistent warm and caring relationships so that children develop a sense of trust, in which their needs will be responded to.

We support children’s social competence by encouraging co-operative play and setting acceptable limits and boundaries.   

We foster children’s learning by empowering them to become capable and competent.   

We offer a rich programme that balances child choice and exploration, with teacher-initiated experiences, which is based on Teachers Inquiry process.

The teaching team is reflective professionals committed to providing a programme, which develops children’s interests and independence.    

We believe that ongoing professional development and support is essential for teachers to demonstrate growth, which in turns invests in your child's early childhood education, and provides them with the best opportunity for developing their mind right from the start.
