Welcome to Learning Land
Learning Land is licensed by the Ministry of Education for 25 children from 2 to 5 years of age. We believe in providing a caring and nurturing environment with a sound educational base.
Our programme allows each child to learn at their own pace. Activities are planned to enhance children’s physical, intellectual, social and creative development. Respect for self, friends, teachers and the environment is fostered.
We value parent input and feedback and recognise the important role families play in their children’s learning. Feel free to approach our staff at any time - we’re here to listen and help wherever we can.
Learning Land philosophy
At Learning Land our primary objective is to provide high quality care and education that fosters respectful social competencies within our centre that form the foundations for life long learning.
We believe that each child is unique and must be treated with love and respect in order to develop and shine to their full potential.
We put a high value on trusting, responsive, reciprocal relationships with children and their families and the development and maintenance of these relationships. We want children and their families to have a strong sense of belonging/turangawaewae.
Our home away from home environment is mixed age, which provides amazing tuakana teina opportunities. We have a play based curriculum which respects the importance of learning through play and reflects Te Whariki, our guiding document. We believe in providing a natural and stimulating environment which offers children space and time to explore their interests in their own way and at their own pace. We respect papatuanuku and all that she offers us and aim to provide tamariki with a rich understanding of sustainability and respect for our world.
We are a multi-cultural centre and we value all families as individuals. We respect their cultural beliefs, values and aspirations within our centre and embed all of New Zealand’s national languages.
We are open 8-4 Monday to Friday. We are also happy to cater a session/time to suit you and your whanau needs.
