Our philosophy/Rapunga whakaaro - Pukaki

Philosophy (Pukaki)

Central City Quality Edu-Care provides a safe, caring and healthy environment where children are nurtured and encouraged to explore and develop at their own pace. We believe that learning is influenced and strengthened through family/whānau and culture, therefore we foster open communication and encourage strong responsive and reciprocal relationships between child, parent/whānau, and teacher.

The needs and interests of the children determine our curriculum and we believe that all children develop best through a holistic play-based learning environment. The children are encouraged and empowered to learn through free play both independently and alongside their parents and teachers. Our curriculum celebrates and embraces cultural diversity and reflects our countries unique dual heritage of Aotearoa New Zealand.
