LovingCare Kindergarten provides an Educational Programme based on a Christian Philosophy. Christian beliefs and values are embedded in the day to day running of the Centre, and in our interactions with children and their families. We cater for the interests and abilities of each child.
Learning stories are written for each child to record their learning journey, and are kept in their portfolio. The Early Childhood Curriculum, Te Whāriki guides the assessment and planning for each individual child.
