Te Ruma Tui/Kea
The environment in Te Ruma Tui/Kea is designed to facilitate choice, challenge, wonderment, self-direction and inspire tamariki to follow their interests.
Depending on the age needs of our roll, we will operate two programs that engage our younger toddler tamariki (Kea Room 2-3 years), and a older children (Tui Room 3-6 years). Our kaiako in the Tui/Kea Room guide a program which is child-led, individually planned around each child's interests in a thoughtfully resourced environment to cater for a wide variety of interests, ages and preferences. School readiness and key competencies (social skills, pre-literacy and pre-maths etc) are interwoven throughout the daily routines of Te Ruma Tui in an organic manner, setting a culture of responsibility, kindness, respect and integrity.
