Let the uniqueness of the child guide our work
Ellerton Preschool is a small, unique and a home away from home in the heart of Mt Eden where children and their whānau develop and grow. We believe in respectful and trustful relationships, always keeping our children and their families at the heart of our work. Our environment is prepared so our children can develop holistically and naturally at their own pace, in their own time with experienced teachers.
Our spacious natural outdoor area enables our children to cultivate a sense of exploration and joy, experience freedom to play and learn with and alongside others and to take risks in a safe and supportive environment. Our education programme provides opportunities that nurture and prepare children with a strong foundation for future learning and smooth transitions.
Our small group environment ensures children can form close relationships with our team as well as their peers, whilst fostering resilience, independence and a love of learning. Underpinning our approach to the education and care of children are the values of respectful relationships with people, places and things, creativity and opportunities to learn and grow naturally.
