The Kereru Room (aged 2 1/2 – 3 1/2 years)

For children aged 2 ½ – 3 ½ years the Kereru Room philosophy is based on the fact that children learn through play and sensory experiences while utilising the natural environment and the resources it provides.  We believe in teaching children the joy of nature and how to care for and protect our world.  In the Kereru Room the children will experience a wide variety of activities, both familiar and unfamiliar, that extend their learning and knowledge, while being fun and challenging.

Transition

For new children, we encourage 6 settling visits, approximately 2 weeks before your child’s start date to ensure a smooth and settled transition for both you and your child.

Children transitioning from our Pukeko Room will have regular accompanied visits to get familiar with their new environment and meet their new friends, ensuring this is a positive step in their learning journey. Our Transition Policy is available by asking a member of the team.

Communication

As well as daily face-to-face catch ups about your child’s day at drop off and pick up time, we use Storypark to share photos, videos and audio of your child’s development so you never miss out on those special moments.  Storypark also offer a handy mobile app so you can have updates right to your smartphone.
