We have a passion and a love to make a difference with each tamaiti at Little Thinkers.

  • We give each tamaiti the opportunity to excel by intertwining intentional teaching methods, guided skill based teaching and tamaiti initiated play based learning to create a balanced, fun learning programme;
  • Each tamaiti is recognised for their unique personality, ability and potential to develop skills and attitudes to support them on their lifelong journey.

Our Values

Each and every day, from drop off to pick up, we value the importance of ensuring that each tamaiti feels safe, secure and nurtured;

Each tamaiti’s individuality, their own personality and capabilities are at the forefront of any decisions we make;

We acknowledge and embrace our unique blend of cultures in Little Thinkers and in Aotearoa. We recognise and support each tamaiti to develop an understanding of Te Tiriti O Waitangi, with Māori as Tangata Whenua;

Our environment is stimulating, thought provoking and creative and taps into each tamaiti’s natural curiosity and desire to understand the world they live in;

We know that the strength of our team contributes to make Little Thinkers great, which is why we believe in a culture of gratitude and appreciation with our staff and valuing them for their individuality;

Our inclusive environment creates a community culture that ensures all tamariki can actively be involved in meaningful play and learning with and alongside their peers.

Our environment embraces sustainable practices, which are naturally embedded into the day to day running of our centre, while also extending these practices to our local community in Kemureti.
