A child is a treasure, to be nurtured, to grow, to flourish.
Cuddly Kiwis Childcare values in providing safe quality learning environments through play for all their young children. We offer stimulating play spaces and a child centered curriculum which inspire creativity, imagination, exploration and enhance children’s emotional, social, cognitive and physical growth. Play is a child’s work!
We aim to build each child’s potential so that they feel secure in their identity,
language and culture and grow up as competent and confident individuals for their ongoing learning journey in life regardless of gender, ethnicity, ability and learning needs, family structure, values, socio-economic status and religion.
Ongoing responsive, reciprocal relationships with teachers, parents, whānau and the local community provides the foundation for personalized learning experiences and a sense of wellbeing and belonging which support holistic learning and development of our children.
We believe in empowering children through opportunities, challenges, offering choices through activities and events in our daily practices so that they grow in body, mind, heart and spirit and achieve excellent learning outcomes building self-esteem, skills and a positive outlook.
Our childcares actively support the bicultural heritage of New Zealand incorporating Te reo Māori me ngā tikanga Māori and embraces and celebrates the multicultural diversity providing equitable opportunities for all in each setting guided by Te Whāriki.
We highly treasure tuakana-teina partnerships amongst our children as they gain knowledge, care and guidance amongst the mixed age group and we recognize the importance of Ako contributing to shared leadership among management, teachers, children, parents, whānau and wider community.
