Our philosophy

‘Where children learn to be independent self led learners’

 Little Wonders Pegasus is a place where tamariki can grow together by fostering relationships, nurturing creativity an engaging curious minds.

Relationships are at the heart of our centre; children and their families experience responsive, reciprocal relationships grounded in trust, respect and care.

Our children experience links between their home and their cultural identities are represented in the environment to nurture their sense of belonging. We value diversity and the uniqueness of our families and invite and empower them to contribute to their children’s learning goals. We acknowledge and nurture the inherent partnership established by Te Tiriti o Te Waitangi.

Kaitiakitanga is valued; where our practises of protecting and looking after our environment are valued. We believe that our environment is our third teacher and being guardians of environment is highlighted throughout our curriculum as a result.

Together with families we will enable the potential of each child while fostering a love of learning, respect for others and a strong sense of self.

Confidence and independence are supported by developing problem solving and self help skills with the time and space to do so alongside peers. Intentional teaching practises ensure children have the opportunity to practise their developing skills.

We support children to engage in meaningful learning experiences  by providing an engaging, safe, and healthy learning environment where Kaiako role model positive and encouraging interactions.

We have a strong focus on children's learning dispositions of, courage and curiosity, trust and playfulness, perseverance, responsibility and confidence.

Open ended play opportunities are provided to allow children to take ownership of their learning, initiate activities take risks and develop confidence.
