Welcome to the Koru room where we nurture care and educate babies until they are approximately 2 years old. We have primary care for our young babies and our respectful practice is based on Emmi Pikler’s philosophy.
We believe that each child learns in their own way, which means there can be a wide variation in the rate and timing of learning and in developing the capacity to apply knowledge and skills in different contexts. All children, through respectful relationships, are capable learners, who thrive when nurtured. Our small numbers in this room mean we can offer quality respectful care and education to all children. Our combined outside area nurtures Maori Philosophy of teina tuakana where the younger children learn with and alongside the older children and vice-versa.
In the Koru room our ratios are 1:4
