We are pleased to announce the opening of our new early learning centre in Mt Roskill, which is located at 143 White Swan Road. The location is very strategic as it is easily approachable from Mt Roskill Hillsborough, Lynfield and Blockhouse Bay.
The early learning centre incorporates restoration of Turret House (Brooks House), which was on site since 1913. Turret House is now in the loving hands of the children of New Zealand.
The centre is licensed for 105 children, with a license for 25 children under two years of age and 80 children over 2 years of age. The children at the centre have the opportunity to spend time in the Manuka Room (0 to 2 years), Kowhai Room (2 to 3 years) Pohutakawa Room (3 to 4 years) and Kauri Room (4 to 5 years).
The teaching team is strongly inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach. Our centre environment is very unique and acts as the third teacher for the child. The educators encourage open-ended learning through provocations they provide within the centre environment. The identity of the capable and competent learner is visible throughout the centre. Strong relationships with children and their whanau are fostered and we actively work towards engaging with the community.
Projects are explored as vehicles of learning. These projects originate from children’s conversations, ongoing interests and open-ended provocations.
We welcome you into our new learning space!!!
Feel free to call and speak with our friendly team to book a visit.
