Our Learning

Our curriculum is designed to help young children grow and learn

Have you been searching for quality child care?

We have an amazing curriculum and programmes that are designed to develop your child.

Our Programme

Tamariki are stimulated by our well-prepared and carefully designed curriculum. 

Our programme is developed to allow children to learn at their own pace in their own way.  We work collaboratively with you and your child to recognise their individual learning goals and aspirations.  Our teachers provide support and opportunities during their time at Kiddie Academy for your child to reach these goals. Our curriculum is designed to be stimulating, yet flexible enough to provide for the children’s desire to play alone or to be part of a group experience. We believe play is key to a child’s development.  Play is a child’s unique way of learning about the world.  We provide opportunities for Both spontaneous play and more structured activities for those children who enjoy this challenge.

Te WhAriki

The principles of Te Whāriki underpin all that we do at Kiddie Academy.

Te Whāriki envisages kaiako in early learning settings working in partnership with parents, whānau and community to realise this vision. The expectation is that, in their early years, children will experience a curriculum that empowers them as life-long learners.
At Kiddie Academy, we provide a diverse range of structured and unstructured learning activities, our professional, well qualified staff promote learning that is purposeful and enjoyable for children.
Our tamariki are encouraged to create, explore, invent, discover, question and experiment to construct their knowledge and enrich their understanding of the world around them.
Embedded in each day are periods of explicit learning where time is set aside to teach specific pre-literacy and pre-numeracy concepts and skills.
At Kiddie Academy, we follow inquire-based approach to localise Te Whāriki to meet local community needs and individual child’s learning goals.

0 - 2 Years

Infants

Physical, cognitive and social emotional growth and development are more rapid during infancy than in any other period of life.  Neural pathways formed during this period are the foundations for all future learning. 

We believe that it is important that each child has a special person to care for their best interests. Your child’s Key Caregiver will be there to work as an advocate for your family and especially for your child, while they are here at Kiddie Academy.

2 - 4 Years

Toddlers

Toddlers are developing their identities as autonomous learners.

Toddlers are active, curious and seeking to make sense of their world. They enjoy testing limits, cause and effects as they develop and refine their working theories.

Our teachers support them by being attentive to their interests and providing opportunities for both new and repeat learning experiences.
