We knew we needed teachers who were in-tune with each child’s cues, filling their emotional tanks so that they are content to explore and play. A small roll and teacher ratios that surpass our legal requirements allows us to offer exceptional care and attention to detail; this was a ‘must have’.
We were determined to create a sustainable space which would encourage our tamariki to grow up to respect and protect our natural world.
We envisioned a centre where every teacher is celebrated and empowered to be their best selves. We know that it takes a big heart to guide our next generation and want our teachers to feel well supported so that this responsibility is never a burden.
Perhaps most importantly, we envisioned a space that we would be proud to enrol our children and extended whānau at. We are truly blessed to have been able to bring this vision into a reality, sharing our Nest with the community.
Opened in early 2020, we are a bespoke Early Learning Centre with just 8 spaces available for children aged under 2; and 24 spaces for children aged between 2 and 6 years old. Focusing on heart-led learning, Nest is led by a caring and compassionate teaching team with a strong belief in the values of respectful practice and peaceful caregiving.
