Philosophy

The philosophy of Uptown Kids Childcare Centre is based on the principles and strands of Te Whariki curriculum. We value a supportive and safe environment where families and staff form a strong community working together for the care and education of the children of the community it serves.

The purposes and aims of the Centre encompass the following:

  • To provide a curriculum that empowers children to learn and grow.
  • To recognise each individual child and their family as unique.
  • To value and respect the different cultural and social backgrounds.
  • To provide an environment where children and their families feel a sense of belonging and receive support.
  • To provide a safe and healthy environment for children and adults associated with the Centre.
  • To provide an environment that encourages spontaneous learning.
  • To promote peaceful conflict resolution.
  • To acknowledge and foster the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi.
"We enrolled our 11 month old son at Uptown Kids on the recommendation of a friend. We are very glad we did! Over the last two years we have been very impressed with the high level of care at Uptown Kids. It has a small roll, warm and very friendly staff and a big outdoor playing area to keep the kids entertained. We know our son is always safe when he is there. "
