Childcare that encourages wonder
At Arohanui and Harinui Childcare Centres we want to encourage our children to wonder, to ponder, to discover, to get excited, to laugh, to get messy, to be creative, to be active and to share experiences with their friends and teachers.
We want them to reflect on their day and retell stories to parents at home. We want them to see themselves in print, and to look at their portfolio books. We want them to foster the love of learning, and to revisit their rich experiences again and again so they can become creative thinkers. We want them to be with passionate and committed teachers who get excited about their learning journey. To us, play is a fundamental tool in learning about our world.
Over the years our centres have enjoyed a long history with families. We invite our families to many social functions and parents’ evenings help to build a sense of community for our families. It has been our pleasure to have many siblings attend Harinui and then then go onto Arohanui.
