Potiki Early Childhood Centre
Our programme offers a wide range of learning experiences based on the children’s strengths, interests and learning needs. Warm, responsive, reciprocal child/adult interactions are fundamental to the quality we offer in a developmentally appropriate learning environment.
At Potiki, our centre programme is based on “LEARNING THROUGH PLAY” and assists children to develop holistically. We value and promote Te Reo and Tikanga Māori by embedding this within our centre practices. Potiki welcomes all families and recognizes the diversity of people’s beliefs, cultures, values and abilities within our community. Family aspirations for children are respected and valued. Supportive relationships are developed through parent contact with each other at the centre. Our team of qualified and experienced educators are committed to support children’s development and learning enabling them to reach their full potential.
We are a mixed-age centre attached to a Teen Parent Unit and licensed for 39 children. Our programme caters for children from birth to their entry at Primary School. Our centre caters mainly for the teen parents and their children. Potiki also welcomes children and families from the local community.
Potiki is the first Childcare and Education Centre established by Taonga Education Trust in 2006, There are two other ECE centres which also come under the same umbrella organisation. Potiki welcomes parents/whanau at all times
