Our environment is set up in an appealing and purposeful way to give the children an exciting range of learning opportunities as they explore and play. Every day holds new adventures and discoveries!
Curriculum and Programme
At Kids Time we have an emergent curriculum where our teachers work alongside the children to help them explore their interests. Children are challenged and supported to extend their current skills and knowledge and to develop attitudes to become successful learners. As part of our programme we incorporate many different learning activities, including:
Nature and science
Sports and physical activities
Games and puzzles
Arts and crafts
Literacy and numeracy
Special events and excursions
Our programme is guided by Te Whāriki (the New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum) and Te Tiriti o Waitangi and is evaluated on a regular basis.

Each child has a portfolio, which celebrates their learning and development. This includes photos and stories documenting their learning and samples of their work. We encourage parents and whanau to also contribute to their children's portfolios.
