Things to know about Koru​
  • We have a 1:6 ratio of teachers to children, with a maximum of 34 children in this space each day.

  • Our toddlers and preschoolers see themselves as confident, capable, independent learners and we encourage this by supporting their emotional, physical and spiritual needs.

  • We believe in an inclusive, child led, play based learning environment, where our teachers support our children's play with interactions and experiences.

  • Literacy and numeracy are interwoven throughout the day alongside the development of social skills.

  • Through play, strong relationships are built that foster our children's sense of self.

  • Every child is treated with respect, and child guidance strategies are positive and nurturing.

  • In our outdoor space our children take part in many activities such as water and sand play, messy play, climbing, gardening, arts and crafts, bike riding, regular walks in our local community and our wonderful Envirokidz programme.

  • In our indoor space our children read books, dance to music, write, draw, sing, dress up, build with blocks and PLAY!

  • We share morning tea and lunch together every day.

  • We have daily mat times which help us to develop communication and listening skills, collaboration skills and also helps to prepare us for school.
