How we teach/Me pehea te ako - Pukuatua
How we teach at Pukuatua Street:
At Pukuatua street the pou tokumanawa on which we build our practice is whakawhanaungatanga.
Strong, warm, reciprocal relationships based on trust, respect and aroha develops an environment that celebrates individuality, embraces diversity and allows children’s personalities to shine through.
Guided by a philosophy and curriculum priorities that place tamariki at the centre of their own learning we are able to build on these relationships to create a learning environment that is responsive to each child’s learning journey.
Experienced kaikao use childrens interests and strengths, as well as whanau aspirations, and weave a curriculum that allows the child to take the lead of their own leaning journey.
We champion a play-based learning environment that supports tamariki to learn and grow at a pace they set for themselves, supporting social and emotional growth as they learn alongside a ratou hoa.
