Stellar Room

Stellar is for our 3.5 to 6 year olds, it is spacious inside and out. Here our children are becoming more independent and increasing their self-help skills. Tamariki are increasing their fine and gross motor skills and this environment is perfect. The children are extending their social skills and amazing friendships are forged in this tight knit group. The environment and flow of the day is designed to increase skills and preparedness for school. Everything is on offer throughout the day from art, dancing, music, singing, messy play, carpentry, reading and more. Activities and provocations are specially designed to cover all areas of the curriculum.

Our cook makes nutritious meals and snacks for our tamariki. On a Friday it’s lunch box day! This is a favourite with our children and helps prepare them for school.
