Our Programme

Our focus is on providing excellent childcare with the best educational resources, experienced teachers and a beautiful environment to challenge and stimulate your child. We believe children learn through play, by being emersed in an environment which is rich in opportunities for learning, experimenting and making discoveries.

As teachers, we have a role of facilitator, guide and supporter. We believe it is our role to empower children, to foster their efforts and celebrate their contributions.

By giving children responsibility for their own work, and supporting their efforts along the way, we are building children’s self-esteem, confidence and belief in their abilities.

At Sunbeams Kindergarten we are guided by the New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum Te Whariki.

Through a process of assessment, planning and evaluation and information sharing with parents and whanau, we are able to implement a collaborative learning programme that is in-depth and relevant.
