Good Beginnings is the foundation of a positive and life-long learning process. Our name expresses our philosophy, which is based on the beliefs that:
- Each child is unique
- Children learn through discovery, exploring, investigating, thinking and communicating
- Good communication and close links between teachers, parents, whanau and the community is the basis of the programme
- Children respond to recognition and encouragement
- Effective programme planning and assessment covers all aspects of children’s learning
Our philosophy, together with aspirations families have for their child during their time at the centre guide the programme.
