Core Values

"Our Mission is to nourish our seeds to grow as life-long learners with Positive Mind, and Grit"

  • Whanau/Family: 

Parents are the children's first teachers. A strong working relationship

alongside parents/whanau is essential to to children's wellbeing and

enhances their early education (Whanau tangata).

  • Respect: 

We respect children's rights and who they are. We will treat all people

how we would like to be treated. We will respect and value our

learning environments (Ngāhononga).

  • Exploration:

This is how children make sense of the world, with their experience

they learn (Mana aoturoa). "Learning is an experience. Everything

else is just information." (Albert Einstein)

  • Passion:

The Seedlings team are passionate about creating and enhancing

exciting learning opportunities and inspiring lifelong learning (Ako).

  • Natural Environment:

Seedlings Preschool will always provide a natural classroom without

walls and ceilings for children to explore and adventure freely while 

developing an ethic of care (Kaitiakitanga) for the environment.
