Te Akonga Early Learning Centre - Where children with special needs get special attention

Our Philosophy
 
 Te Akonga is a unique early learning centre with a truly inclusive philosophy; we strive to meet the needs of all children and their families, and we welcome and support children with additional needs.

We cherish and respect every child, regardless of their ability, ethnicity, gender, age or socio-economic background.  We promote positive outcomes for all children through the development of warm responsive relationships and quality learning experiences.

We value respectful practice, where love and care is evident in the way we deliver the curriculum, and interact with children and their whānau.

We honour the unique place of Māori as tangata whenua and respect the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi. We endeavour to embed Te Reo Māori me ōna tikanga into our daily practice.
