Our Learning Centres
To assist the natural growth of our tamariki and their learning, Footprints educare has four learning centres. Each centre represents the different stages of our tamariki’s journey from infant to pre-schooler.
“It is important to us that all tamariki receive the best love and care they deserve to flourish in who they are”.
By establishing these four centres we are able to effectively develop and support the learning growth of our tamariki. Each centre achieves this by facilitating learning through enhancing the child’s individual interests and presenting opportunity for knowledge development and understanding of the world around them.
We see the environment as an important learning tool for our tamariki.
Footprints educare facilities have been carefully designed to make the most of our beautiful Far North setting. All learning centres are integrated by design with the outdoors. Whether it be lunch together, water play, or story time under the Pohutakawa tree – exploration of our environment is encouraged and celebrated.
Maori cultural expression is important to us here at Footprints educare. It is integral to who we are.
Our learning centres weave engaging cultural activities:
Nga mahi toi
Valuing each other is important.
We love to explore the diversity of other cultures living within our community through Whakawhānaungatanga (becoming family together).
