At Beach Kids Waihi we are passionate about providing our children with opportunities that promote exploration and learning through play while valuing their individuality and natural curiosity about the world around them. We value the child as unique, capable, competent and active learners; rich with wonder and confidence to explore, learn and discover.
Our environment is recognised for its potential to inspire children. We believe that the space encourages collaboration, communication and exploration. We will strive to create an environment that is physically safe, cognitively challenging and emotionally nurturing.
We are committed to developing respectful relationships, valuing open communication and promoting inclusiveness in all that we do. We acknowledge Te Tiriti o Waitangi as the founding document of Aotearoa New Zealand, and are committed to embracing our bi-cultural heritage.
The staff of Beach Kids Waihi will recognise each child as an individual and foster creativity and inquiry to create a very responsive and authentic learning experience. Knowledge and training are the keys to quality and we are committed to ensuring staff have access to appropriate education and guidance.
At Beach Kids Waihi we believe that our program must reflect the needs, goals and aspirations of children and families. We believe that children are emergent learners, capable of independent and collaborative learning.
