Kia Ora and Welcome to Discoveries Educare Browns Bay.
At Discoveries Educare we consider your child's early years to be extremely important. This is the reason why it important for us as professional and caring educators to provide you with professional and friendly support to assist with your child's education and development.
We have experienced qualified staff to ensure your child receives the best education and care possible. Within an optimum learning environment where we meet your child's individual needs your child will experience an environment that is flexible to their interests and provide them with the opportunities to become, confident, competent life long learners.
Our programme incorporates the Early Childhood Curriculum of Te Whaariki, which includes the principles of holistic, development, empowerment, family and community relationships strands of Well Being, Belonging, Communication, Exploration and Contribution.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any further information regarding the placement of your child or if you would like to come and have a look around our friendly and nurturing environment.
We aim to provide a consistent, high standard care and education to children through nurturing their inquiring minds and encouraging their individualism. We are here to foster the development of their critical thinking skills, initiative, choice and appreciation of differences.
It is our core mission to create a personalised, secure, caring and nurturing environment for your child and help them learn and grow all throughout their developmental years.
We understand and respect that each child has a different physical, emotional, social and spiritual development which is why we equip our centres with resources that acknowledge the value of cultural diversity. We respect the unique place of Maori children as Tangata Whenua and understand that each child has the right to rich bi-cultural experiences that reflect the heritage of all parties.
We strongly support the idea of building strong relationships between the parent and the child. We encourage that all parents, whānau and matua actively participate in our daily programmes and other special events.
Our centre’s programme is based on the ‘Te Whaariki’ New Zealand early childhood curriculum from Ministry of Education.
We want to help build your child’s confidence and prepare him or her for the transition to primary school with ease. Our services are open to children and families of all race, religion, gender, cultural heritage and political beliefs. We put high value to your input in rearing your child at school. At Discoveries Educare, everyone is welcome to learn and grow.
We strongly believe in the philosophy that hands-on experience is the best way for a child to learn.
We ensure to include in your child’s programme a number of daily activities that will help in the process of learning and development. We encourage them to speak their minds and ask questions and we offer child directed activities like art and sensory time. We also organise activities that allow parents like you to establish a deeper bond with your child and collectively interact with other children at the centre.
