Our daily programme at Educare Porirua is inspired by Te Whariki, The New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum. This influences our practice in many ways, including the flow of our day. We show respect for our tamariki by listening and responding to their individual needs around moe and kai times. We work alongside parents and whānau in establishing routines for bottles and sleep that support care routines at home. For the older children we aim to gently and respectfully establish routines which will best prepare them for school, while not removing the joy of being in preschool. For our younger tamariki, we are guided by the Tipu Room statement of practice.
Exploration time is where children have the opportunity to be involved in learning experiences of their own choice both inside and outside. These are both teacher led and child led as the needs of the children are assessed and interests extended.
