Our Centre Philosophy - Tatou Kaupapa

We acknowledge the Treaty of Waitangi as one of the guiding documents for education in Aotearoa, New Zealand

At Bambinos we believe each child is respected as an individual whose potential is recognised and supported accordingly to his/her strengths and interests and abilities.  We believe in the four broad Principles of the early childhood curriculum. Te Whariki and the stands and goals which arise from these principles.

Empowerment Whakamana To empower children to learn and grow
Holistic Development Kotahitanga To grow physically, socially, intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually to realize one’s potential.
Family and Community Whanaungatanga The wider world of family and community is an integral part of our centre.
Relationships Nga Hononga Children learn through responsive and reciprocal relationships with people, places, and things.
Well-being Mana Atua To Provide a loving, caring and nurturing the environment.
Belonging Mana Whenua: To Provide children and their families with a sense of belonging.
Contribution Mana Tangata To Provide opportunities for learning that are equal and each child’s contributions are valued.
Communication Mana Reo Languages and symbols of their own and other cultures are promoted and protected.
Exploration Mana Aoturoa Children learn through active exploration of our environment.
  • We believe that children are active learners and therefore we provide them with a stimulating, encouraging, challenging and literacy environment.
  • We aim to provide an environment where our tamariki learn through establishing trusting and positive relationships with other children, family/whanau, and the community.
  • We embrace a Whanaungatanga and acknowledge Manaakitanga to support children, teachers and all the families to become increasingly aware of the culturally diverse community.
  • We believe in guiding and facilitating children’s learning in an inclusive environment.
