Connecting children to Jesus

Our Centre is unique because God’s love is our motivation.


Starting the journey in a forever friendship with Jesus.

"Let the children come to Me."  Mark 10:14

Our Preschool is unique because God’s love is our motivation.   We want each child to experience the unconditional love of Jesus and to believe that they are valuable (taonga).   In our Preschool we respond to the preciousness of others, because all are precious to God.  We respect and value the influence of the family and their diverse cultures and consider it a privilege to share their child.


We believe the Bible demonstrates the best way to live.   Because of this, it forms the heart of our curriculum.  The principles of loving God and others are demonstrated through the developing of warm, caring, reciprocal relationships (ngā hononga) across the Centre and explored through Bible stories, Christian songs, prayer and Christian values in the daily, play-based learning programme.   Each child in our care will be encouraged to develop respect, emotional agility, to actively learn, to be community-focused and to have a heart of love.  These fundamental values (represented through REACH, our Flourishing Spirit-Led Child curriculum) will be creatively woven through the principles and strands of Te Whāriki. They all be delivered in a way that upholds Te Tiriti O Waitangi, is responsive to individual learners and where parents are respected as first teachers.

Practising collaboration with family and whanau (whanaungatanga), kaiako will implement a responsive, dynamic curriculum that enables every individual to flourish as competent and confident learners (whakamana) and communicators (mana reo), healthy in mind (taha hinengaro, taha whanau), body (taha tinana) and spirit (taha wairua), secure in their sense of belonging (mana whenua) and in the knowledge that they make a valued contribution to society (mana tangata).
