PEBBLES' PHILOSOPHY

PARENT INFORMATION

OUR PHILOSOPHY

  • We recognise parents as the first educators of their child, we value whānau aspirations and welcome their wealth of diverse talents.

  • We value tamariki as unique individuals and celebrate their successes to ensure they see themselves as competent and confident learners.

  • We foster a safe environment of aroha and respect as a base to build reciprocal relationships with all tamariki, whānau and within our teaching team.

  • We embrace our bi-cultural heritage through waiata, Te Reo and tikanga Māori values so that our tamariki will embrace their heritage as young New Zealanders.

  • We honour Te Tiriti o Waitangi and recognise Māori as Tangata Whenua 

  • We embrace all cultures and recognise that cultural diversity forms a large part of NZ

  • We aim to ignite tamariki interests to discover, explore and learn through planned and spontaneous play

  • We recognise that a positive team culture, open communication, collaborative, reflective practice and  ongoing professional development is essential for kaiako to grow both personally and professionally.

  • We aim to deliver a holistic education based on Montessori principles, within the framework of Te Whāriki, Te Ara Poutama, the NELP’S and Tātaiako as our guiding documents.
