Natures Nest Early Learning Centre
Monday to Friday 7.15am to 5.30pm
We are a beautiful purpose built childcare centre licensed for 75 children from birth to five years old.
We place a high value on incorporating natural resources & nature's lessons into our daily life. A place where children & whanau can grow a deep appreciation of nature & its importance. This means within our curriculum, sustainability is at the forefront of our focus. Our environment in the centre reflects the magic of the natural world around us.
Our hours of operation are 7.15am - 5.30pm Monday to Friday. (only closed public holidays) Healthy nutritious meals are provided for the children. We offer families full day (7.15am-5.30pm) & school time sessions (9am-3.30pm).
The daily education programme provides a mix of some structure & child initiated play. We incorporate a comprehensive transition to school programme in our daily routine for our preschool children. Our planning reflects this by being centered around the interests & strengths of the individual child & the centre as a whole. The planning process weaves emergent, environmental sustainability, individual learning & developmental experiences that are supported alongside a dedicated team of experienced educators.
Management & staff place a high importance to ongoing professional development, this is a collaborative decision to ensure the interests of the individual & centre needs are met.
Our centre is a warm fun loving place to be where children are treated with respect & dignity that empowers them to work & learn alongside others & where the staff foster & role model some traditional values & manners.
We look forward to the future & will ensure our centre is constantly reviewing practices & growing to meet the children's, family & community needs.
