Our smaller than usual ratios and maximum roll of 20 children at any one time, ensures your child is at the heart of our work. Together our team ensures our teaching, our environment and learning opportunities support, challenge and nurture your child to be the best of themselves.
Connected deeply and richly to the natural environment, Ellerton Preschool aims to provide a safe, secure and a quality home like space, filled with opportunities for children to explore. Our team aims to bring joy in everyday learning and ignite children’s imaginations.
Our teachers consciously choose to focus on practices and teaching strategies that promote and offer meaningful connections with land and nature. Our curriculum promotes the joy of being in nature. We want our tamariki to understand risk and confidence, love and protection, care and respect in their daily experiences. It is significant for our spaces to be filled with natural and open-ended resources. This allows flexibility and opportunities for children to weave their own magic through a little bit of imagination.
