At Twinkle Twinkle we run a programme that puts the child at the centre of their learning experiences. We observe their interests and plan how best to extend on those experiences.

The outcome is that children are developing holistically by experimenting with, and honing their physical, social, emotional and spiritual skills.

This will prepare them for life-long love of learning and the ability to foster meaningful relationships.

As part of our programme we also provide morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.

We acknowledge this this is an important time to develop a strong sense of community by coming together to share kai.

When children turn four we offer a ready for school programme that helps to prepare children for school, things like how to hold a pencil correctly, introduction to literacy, numeracy and phonics.

Some simple things like how to sit on a mat and line up are small things but they make the transition to school much easier. We will also assist with school visits and maintain relationships with primary schools in our area.

We follow the New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum Te Whariki.

Te Whariki is designed to promote the ‘whole child’,

“To grow up as competent and confident learners and communicators, healthy in mind, body and spirit, secure in their sense of belonging and in the knowledge that they make a valued contribution to society”.
