Bright Beginnings Mt Roskill
Our beautiful Childcare Centre in Mt Roskill for children aged 0-5 years located at 143 White Swan Road, Mt Roskill.
Our purpose built childcare centre, which is located at 143 White Swan Road has been running for over four years now. 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 beautiful learning space.
Feel free to call and speak with our friendly team to book a visit.
Our Umbrella Concept for this year -‘Connections’:
Our Lives seem to be coming on track after being in lockdown and disruptive routines in last two and a half years. Children are excited to meet their kaiako and friends as everyone is back to the Centre exploring their learning environment after a long gap. We have had a good start to this year where children could connect back with their peers and the delight on their face is making the Centre look brighter with happy faces around. However, with the need to accept the situation around us, connecting with each other is a necessity now which also helps in strengthen our bonds among our tamariki and Whanau. Hence, at Bright Beginnings Early Learning Centre, we would take our learning journey to a different direction and contribute to the real life experiences for each other to support wellbeing of all our stakeholders. In addition, our educators would be focusing on effective teaching practices for our children where they will be supported by kaiko, Whanau and the wider community which will further enhance their learnings. Therefore, strengthening connections would lead to improved teaching practices based on the needs of the our tamriki’s mental and physical well being.
Our entire team is looking forward with lot of enthusiasm towards the Project Enquiry for this year which will be ‘Connections’. This pandemic has made us as educators realize the importance of being connected which we should inculcate in our little ones at the younger age. Each room will take this enquiry forward based on the child’s interest along with providing them with age appropriate learning experiences.
