We interpret outstanding care to be a safe and caring environment within which there is a holistic approach to developing the joy of learning for children.
This is achieved by engaging, encouraging and growing a child’s sense of curiosity. We have respect, and acceptance for each child’s abilities and pace for learning, because we know they are unique.
Spontaneous play is nurtured and valued at Nga Tamariki Puawai.
Parents often comment on our spacious, well-resourced environment. This enables children to investigate their world and explore independently. Through a child-centred environment that is supported by a passionate team of teachers, we aim to empower self-assured, adventurous learners.
