Our Philosophy / Kaupapa

We believe tamariki (children) are our future and they are puiaki (precious). At Grow ECE we are committed to nurturing our children by creating a positive learning environment where children can flourish, grow and be empowered to be the best they can be.

We will provide an environment that is safe and fun where positive core beliefs, a sense of belonging and self-management are fostered and encouraged. Our relationships with tamariki and whānau will be caring and patient. We will strive to promote and teach all we know about te ao Māori in respect to our bi-cultural heritage.

On this solid foundation learning opportunities will be presented through play to foster the love of learning for children at their own pace. Through exploration children will be encouraged to grow their own individual learning journey while respecting cultural diversity and the environment, working together, and becoming resilient, independent confident learners.
