“Wisdom begins with wonder.” – Socrates
“To cherish the joy of families and the different ways they come to us.”
For each child to achieve success, teaching practice is developed through knowledge of Te Whāriki as a curriculum document; current research, theory, and practice; and professional development.
Education Review Office Findings
“Children show high levels of engagement in group and individual play. They have many choices within the broad range of opportunities provided. Teachers are proactive about and responsive to children’s interests, needs and strengths. They use questioning and conversations well to extend children’s thinking, knowledge and curiosity. Children are encouraged to participate in decision-making about programmes and routines.” – 19/02/2016.

Learning Curves Childcare Centre has focused the care and education programme around supporting the entire family, not just the child that stays with us for the day. We firmly support Bronfenbrenner’s theory of the Ecology of Human Development (MOE 1996), and value the connection we make with families and communities.
We offer full-day care and education with a minimum of two days per week so children have time to really feel a part of the environment and have opportunities to contribute to the programme. We also offer ’20 ECE’ hours per week (four hours per day as Morning or Afternoon sessions) as available.
