Learning about our local community

As we have such a high teacher to child ratio, we often take trips either in the van, on foot or at the little centre in the buggies, out into our local community. We believe it is important to learn about the world around us, and this means we can extend on interests in a meaningful way.
We explore places such as;

  • The pet shop
  • Bunnings
  • Chalmers Retirement Home
  • Mount Bryan Reserve on Octavius Place
  • Coastal Walkway
  • Te Henui Walkway (there’s a river, with ducks!)
  • Fitzroy park/skatepark
  • Centre city ie shopping centre and surrounding shops
  • Puke Ariki

We also take trips in our van to places further afield, depending on the interests of our tamariki.
