Apple Tree Glenfield | Our Childcare Curriculum

We are implementing the Early Childhood Education Curriculum (Te Whariki) for our Childcare programme, where we acknowledge the child’s interest and help to develop a competent and capable learner. Our curriculum includes separate areas for Art, Music, Reading, Play Dough, Pretend Play, Blocks, Science and Nature; also Sand and Water Play, and Physical Environment.

We believe that sleep time needs to be a positive time for children and adults. Our teachers role will be to respond to an infant's individual rhythms. Parents will be consulted and the information about the child's routines will be shared with the staff. Appropriate individual reference will be endorsed and recognised.

Settling in new infants and toddlers

To settle in new children we believe in unhurried, individualised routines, and encourage quality dialogue on a daily basis between families and educators.

To support this, our adult to child ratio is 1:4.
