Nurture by Nature Early Childhood Care and Education Centre
The philosophy at Nurture by Nature encompasses several overlapping concepts. These are:
That in order to learn and develop, a child must be secure and happy. From this base, the child can then, with support of well-trained, warm, caring and experienced early childhood teachers, take advantage of,
and be stimulated by, a well-presented, child-initiated curriculum.
The curriculum and practices of the centre will reflect the dual parties of Te Tiriti o Waitangi, and be an integral part of our learning community.
That with the provision of a quality physical environment – children and staff will be uplifted in their play
and work, and parents will feel that they have made a good choice for their child.
That successful experience at appropriate development levels will greatly add to a child’s success throughout their life.
This curriculum philosophy is, jointly, activity and development based, and centred on the premise that everything that occurs with or for a child is defined as curriculum.
