Early learning at Flippers is a fully licensed Early Childhood Centre that provides full time, part time and casual care for children from 3 months old to school entry age. We have an awesome team of registered and qualified staff

Flippers is a whanau that learn together, a tuakana/teina relationship is promoted as older children guide younger children in our mixed aged setting, children are encouraged to and enjoy looking out for each other and passing their knowledge on to each other.

Children are encouraged to be risk takers, to be independent, make choices, take the lead and follow their interests in their learning

Priorities for learning include developing social, literacy and numeracy skills

Children are encouraged to be critical thinkers and active explorers

Teachers promote a love of learning and learning is fun in an environment where care and education are interwoven

Teachers embrace New Zealand’s languages, values and bicultural understandings as well as those of other cultures

Healthy lifestyle choices are promoted and children, teachers and families have a responsibility for the natural environment and awareness of sustainability

We utilise the wider community to support our programme as it provides a variety of learning experiences for us

We have an exciting programme for our older 4 year olds which takes place on Wednesdays in "the bush" not far from centre.
