Our Culture at Bright Beginnings Early Learning Centres

Bright Beginnings Early Learning Centre provides childcare in Panmure, Mt Roskill, and Howick in Auckland and also Hamilton East

Providing Quality Childcare Since 2012   Infants, Toddlers & Preschool  •  Daycare Centre

Bright Beginnings Early Learning Centre Culture

Bright Beginnings Early Learning Centre believes in providing a creative and open-ended environment which encourages infinite learning for the children and strong relationships between teachers, children and families.

Our culture is based upon the Reggio Emilia key principles:

Children are capable and competent learners:

we encourage children to develop the tools required to investigate, make sense of objects and ideas about which they are curious, and to become promoters of culture, values and rights; and

we believe in giving children complete ownership of their learning and their experiences. The centre environment strongly reflects our inspiration – The Reggio Emilia philosophy, from Reggio Emilia, Italy

Teachers and parents, through their interactions with the children and each other, have a responsibility to help the child learn:

first and foremost, our teachers spend quality time talking and listening to the children;

parent participation is a key part of the children’s learning process; and

reciprocal communication between the children, parents and teachers is paramount to help create the spirit of cooperation, collaboration, and co-construction of knowledge.

The environment acts as a third teacher for our children:

our environment encourages collaboration, communication and exploration. Our spaces are filled with natural light, order and beauty. Each space has an identity and a purpose and is cared for and respected by the children and the adults. Our spaces are alive, flexible and open to change, to support our children in exploring deeper into their interests and investigations.

“The environment should act as an aquarium which reflects the ideas, ethics, attitudes and culture of the people who live in it. This is what we are working towards”. – Loris Malaguzzi

Our Early Learning Centre Culture

Respect is a keyword and it is emphasised in all aspects of the day, whether it is by routines, the educational programme or interactions between children and adults.

There is flexibility in the day’s routines; at the same time care is taken that each individual child’s needs are recognised and respected.

We believe in partnership, and as a team, we focus on extending this respect to children, families and team members.

We work towards planning for the children in a triadic manner, with teachers, parents and children being completely involved with centre life.

The day’s routines are flexible. At the same time, care is taken to recognise and respect each child’s needs.

Our Children

We believe that children are full of potential and are far more competent and capable of managing themselves and directing their own learning than we think.

They have the capacity for representing ideas in a wide variety of symbolic and realistic approaches. Furthermore, we trust in the importance of children’s symbolic language “The 100 Languages”.

Our Teachers

We wish to provide an atmosphere of harmony as we believe it is essential in facilitating positive, supportive, adult-child relationships. The role of our teachers is first and foremost to be that of a co-learner alongside the children.

Through working together we work towards a common purpose – the building of a culture which respects childhood as a time to explore, investigate, create, and be happy.

Our Parents at BBELC - Bright Beginnings Early Learning Centre Childcare (1)

Our Parents

We strive to offer a home away from home, where there is mutual respect and trust, and where we see one another as family. We see many forms of parent participation and believe that they are an essential component of the children’s learning and the running of the programme.

We respect the partnership that we have with our parents and wish to continue to build on it through working together co-operatively and transparently.

Our Environment

We trust that every child should be encouraged to grow and learn in a natural environment that facilitates a positive contribution to society.

Our sons attended Bright beginnings early leaning Centre and absolutely loved it. They attended Manuka and Kowhai rooms, and later also Pohutukawa room. The teachers in all three rooms were just SO lovely, caring, attentive and supported their learning journeys and communicated the children’s achievements with us. We are so thankful for the time our kids were able to spend there, and the kids made great memories for life. We highly recommend BBELC to anyone looking for a child care center. We had to leave due to moving overseas and will miss BBELC so much!!!

"I don't think I can express in words the gratitude I feel towards you all. My child, Amrin have learnt so much in your care that will stay with her for life. I believe their fondest memories of childhood will include many of you - I truly hope you are all extremely proud your efforts with our children. Thank you for all the wonderful support and care you have given to my daughter. This Centre is a very special place and she has grown so much in your nurturing, inspiring and challenging environment. You are really helping her to prepare for her school foundation." Actually, this is a second home for Amrin, she started her journey from BBELC, Auckland and will leave for school from here. Thanks to all the teachers, If I start typing the names, the list will be so long. In last especially I should not forget Nikita, who is so understanding and caring towards kids as well as families. Thank you with much love."

We have been with BBELC Hamilton since 2020 during the peak of pandemic and I never doubted to bring my children here knowing that they are on a safe place and the team are all aware of the best health and safety plan to ensure that everyone in the centre are safe. The centre is the BEST for me in terms of CLEANLINESS (the place os very tidy), SAFETY OF CHILDREN (only parents/caregivers can enter the premises on their pin coded door), FRIENDLY STAFF (you will be greeted by a very friendly receptionist, you can talk to the teachers about your concern with your child), OPEN DOOR POLICY (Manager’s door is open all times for parents for any concern or question), NUTRICIOUS FOOD for our kids, SCHOOL READINESS PROGRAM (table activities, book reading, sharing with others, simple literacy), MAT TIME IS THE BEST as the kids learn to socialize, listen to teachers, story telling, yoga, dance time, music time,etc. and they also held PARENTS TIME where we can chat with the teacher about our kids, meet other parents, share experiences and strategies, parents gets treat and gift on special occasion like mother’s day and father’s day that will definitely make your day as a parent. And lastly for few years now, my kids have enjoyed their Christmas party where they get gift and enjoy bouncy castle, it’s simple but the experience and memories will be lifetime. THANKS TO ALL THE STAFF AND TEACHERS OF BBELC Hamilton! KUDOS TO ALL YOUR HARDWORK AND DEDICATION. CHEERS TO MANY MORE YEARS OF SUCCESS! - DELA CRUZ Family ( Robb and Reuben)

Bright Beginnings Early Learning Centre - Hamilton is like a second home to my 2 little girls. They are very supportive of the children’s early learning and individual development. The rooms are spacious, warm and cozy and provide different kinds of resources for the children to explore. My girls are always excited to go to kindy every morning. Since I have also recently become part of this centre, it’s good to know and see for myself how things work in the centre and how very passionate the staff are in looking after every child like they are family. As a parent, it gives me the peace of mind that my children are in good hands and are well taken cared of. Definitely made the right decision to enroll our children here.
