Why choose Target Road Discoveries Educare?
You may have already visited our beautiful, brand-new, purpose built centre…however if you haven’t we would LOVE to show you around so please feel free to arrange a visit soon!
We are licensed for 100 children, 25 in the Under Two’s environment, and up to 75 in our spacious and inviting Over Two’s environment. All our staff are qualified and chosen for their passion for teaching and the ability to plan and implement programmes based on your child's interest and needs. Each teacher is committed to ongoing self review and professional development, to ensure their teaching and your child’s learning experience are of the highest quality possible.
We provide a vegetarian menu full of fresh fruit and vegetables that ensure your child is getting the 5+ a day promoted by the Ministry of Health. Many parents love this as they know their children have had their greens and dinner at home is not so stressful.
We have large indoor and outdoor areas, offering children space and a wide variety of resources and toys to experience.
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.
