Our Programme

Our everyday aim is to create an unrushed environment where the children can feel at ease to explore and follow their learning choices, to build on their sense of wellbeing and belonging by incorporating aspects of their home life into the life of the preschool.

Our daily programme includes a healthy mix of child initiated philosophy and teacher directed activity.  Our planning is reflective of the interest of individuals and the group as a collective, we link in the emergent curriculum to our programme to ensure that learning is relevant to the children’s interests. Our philosophy is based on the principles, strands and goals of our New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum, Te Whaariki.

We have a comprehensive literacy and numeracy programme that ensures children are best prepared for transition to primary school.  Our qualified and experienced team has the skills to adapt to changes in our programme.

We are committed to Te Reo Maori and upholding the principles of Ti Tiriti of Waitangi and this is seamlessly interwoven into our everyday practice.

Your child’s learning journey will be documented in their Journal, this is a formal way of documenting progress and achievements at Matakana Village Preschool.

Daily interactions with teachers will ensure you are kept up to date with any developments in your child’s time with us.

We are committed to sustainable living and this education forms a basis of our programme, children are shown through modeling and experiences how to minimize our ecological footprint and create sustainable living practices.

We wish to create a relaxed environment where children, parents and teachers feel that they belong and the pre school is an extended part of their community.
