Rhythms and Routines for Our Tamariki
At KIDSpace Early Learning Centre Pakuranga we understand that the shape of the day contributes to how we feel. We like to set and keep routines so that our tamariki know what to expect and when to expect it.
Learning To Be Together
Across the week at our daycare centre in Pakuranga, we schedule great activities to keep our little learners engaged. For instance, we extend our social skills with dedicated Dramatic Playtime to help our children to gain confidence with speaking in front of others, we use drama skills to extend our oral communications and learn that each of us has different needs within our group environment.
Learning By Doing
Part of our timetable at KIDSpace childcare Pakuranga is learning about our natural environment and the ways that the world around us works. We use some of our time at daycare to discover the plants and animals that surround us, we learn about the weight of things when we play with sand and water, and we use maths in interesting ways in our daycare kitchen.
Time To Rest
Learning about the world is so fun, but little ones need rests in between activities. At KIDSpace childcare Pakuranga we know how important it is to carry the rhythms from home into the childcare space. We provide the younger members of our daycare with a nursery space where they can rest, where nurturing, soothing, quiet time is an important part of every day.
We encourage parents to bring their children into the daycare space for settling visits at least three times before they start, because we know that every child is different, and we want to make sure that the routines that work for you can be part of our routines too.
Learning and rest are such important parts of a healthy routine, and then of course there is free play! We make time for your tamariki to choose what they want to do in a safe and supported environment that is tailored to their specific age group.
All of our teachers at KIDSpace Early Learning Centre Pakuranga are trained to encourage your child to be the best they can be. To achieve this we use both free play and scheduled learning times to ensure that our childcare facility provides fun and stability for all our little learners.
