Read about Fantail Room Practices
Our Fantail room is like an extended family, embracing and valuing each toddler as an individual.
We are a welcoming place where children and parents belong, where values of people from different cultures and different abilities are accepted and respected. We believe in inclusion and support all toddlers endeavouring to cater for every one’s needs and interests. We support children with special rights to integrate into our programme.
In our setting we offer opportunities for children to develop knowledge and understanding of the cultural heritage of both parties to Te Tiriti O Waitangi.
We believe in building respectful relationships with children and their families. Families are part of the learning community and we value their input, encourage and welcome their contribution to the daily happenings at the centre. Communication with parents/whanau/caregivers about experiences and happenings are a natural part of our programme and daily activities.
Our natural environment provides opportunities full of discovery and exploration where a wide variety of learning opportunities and experiences within nature are valued and supported. the aesthetically pleasing environment provides opportunity for children to explore, create, discover and build on their knowledge, skills and understanding.
We welcome all who come to our Fantail room sharing our values, vision and joys.
