Our vision/Te wawata

Here at Central City Quality Educare our kaiako guide our tamariki to develop skills for life in a warm and nurturing play based learning environment. As a team we have indentified four core components that underpine our teaching.


An individual approach to each child.
Ko te ahurei o te tamaiti aroha o tātaou mahi.
Let the uniqueness of the child guide our work.

Being a team we work as one to achieve all outcomes.
Ehara taku toa e te toa takitahi, engari he toa takimano.
My strength is not that of an individual, but that of the collective.

Understanding that each child and their families/whānau have their own aspirations for their tamaiti.
Ehara taku toa i te toa takitahi engari he toa takitini.
I come not with my own strengths but bring with me the gifts, talents and strengths of my family, tribe and ancestors.

The children light the way and we support their journey.
Mā te huruhuru ka rere te manu.
Adorn the bird with feathers and it will fly.
