WELCOME TO WHAINGAROA CHILDCARE
We provide childcare and education for children aged three months to school age, right in the heart of Raglan Township.
Open from 7.30am to 4.30pm, we have two learning rooms, Iti Kahurangi, where children learn and explore until 2 to 2.5 years of age, and Maunga Teitei, where they blossom and grow until they leave for school. We believe that children are unique individuals, therefore our environment, daily programme, and curriculum have been designed to allow children to explore, discover, create and learn at their own pace.
In the Iti Kahurangi room our curriculum is inspired by the work of Magda Gerber and Emmi Pikler, which has led to us implementing a freedom of movement programme alongside a primary caregiving approach where each child is allocated a whanau teacher who is primarily responsible for their needs. Above all we advocate total respect for each child.
In the Maunga Teitei room, we encourage children to become active explorers of their environment; to question and wonder about the world, to make discoveries and to set their own goals. Our curriculum is supported by a Bush Park program for children aged 4 years and over.
We also believe in families choosing what’s best for them, so we have no minimum enrolment times, allowing you to choose the days and hours which suit your family.
