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.
