WELLBEING / ORA'ANGA VAERUA
While we start by providing your child with nutrition for the day, we also care about wellbeing.
This is looking after their physical mental health and providing support for them to grow as an infant to a happy healthy child. It’s about nutritional food, caring and routine.
“As soon as you walk in, you feel good as a parent. My son has good manners. He [name] has learned this from Punanga.”

CULTURAL IDENTITY / TUPU’ANGA RANGATIRA
We support bicultural practices in our multicultural learning environment as a way of keeping our reo and culture alive.
With us culture is valued, all people are welcomed and relationships are important. We provide environments that support diversity, acknowledge Maori as Tangata Whenua and embrace bicultural practices.
“I feel really proud to hear my children singing the Imene Tuki. I enjoy hearing their stories about their friends, that’s how I learn all the children’s names.”

LOVE / INANGARO
Inangaro is integrated in all that we do, see, feel and hear.
We believe raising a child is a communal effort brought together by love.
“It’s like leaving my son with family. I connect with the staff. It’s so positive here.”

FAITH / 'IRINAKI
