OUR PHILOSOPHY

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Westpark Preschool is a welcoming home away from home for our Tamariki, Kaiako and Whānau, representing love, respect and growth. Strong in celebrating all Tamariki as unique and curious while also striving to nurture individual whānau aspirations within our Westpark community.

Westpark Preschool celebrates our tamariki as exceptional and through the art of child led learning and observation we engage and enable all tamariki to extend their knowledge and to embrace their passions while truly gaining essential life skills in a relevant and fun way.

Our approach and curriculum support tamariki to drive and set the pace for their own learning, to develop, explore and investigate according to their individual interests while also providing collaboration opportunities for growth within group interests.

Along with the use of Te Whāriki, we incorporate Primary caregiving and other aspects of the RIE Philosophy into our programme. We value ourselves on providing a home away from home for our tamariki and their whanāu. Warmth, love and nurturing are woven through our philosophy ensuring that tamariki have the opportunity to develop strong relationships nestled with people and nature.
