Education Review Office
The following ERO comments from our latest review reinforce our philosophy and re-iterate our high standard of childcare provided to the greater Ponsonby Community over more than 25 years
- Children have a strong sense of belonging. They are confident communicators who regularly talk about their play. Children explore the attractive, spacious, well organised learning environment and participate in activities of interest to them.
- A stable teaching team share the leadership of the crèche and work together in respectful and supportive ways with the goal of providing a high quality child care centre that meets the needs of the community.
- The experienced teaching team know children very well and are consistently available to support children’s play. Teachers listen to children, encourage them to be involved in activities and affirm children’s thinking. They provide activities which promote the development of language learning and numeracy skills and a love of art, storytelling, and creative play
- Children are well supported to learn ways to interact positively with each other and to manage their relationships with others effectively. Building social competence is highlighted as a key learning disposition.
