VILLAGE KIDS ARE HAPPY KIDS!

Early Childhood Development is the crucial process of developing and preparing children for later life and adulthood. It is the foundation for preparing them to be physically, emotionally and cognitively ready for school and later life.

Childcare services play an important role in the Early Childhood Development process, and are so much more than just a drop-off location for working parents. They are places where children can engage in a variety of important social and educational activities to help them develop confidence, social skills, language and communication abilities, and school-readiness.

Village Kids offers a safe, stimulating and fun environment where children are encouraged to explore, take risks, and develop a sense of responsibility for themselves, and a respect for others.

Our small learning environments guarantee more personal attention, and children can experience learning, friendship and support to help them develop into confident, happy, well-rounded individuals with bright futures ahead of them!

Philosophy

We believe, at Village Kids that every child is a taonga – treasure and will learn best when both teachers and the learning environment affirm and support children holistically; which is underpinned by the Early Childhood Curriculum – Te Whariki.

The values of Paua are unique to us and are interwoven into our culture to ensure we work collaboratively, as a community of learners. We recognise and share our New Zealand dual culture and heritage and we value our joint partnership with parents, whanau and the wider community.
