Willows Early Learning Centre

Play is a tamariki’s work

At Willows we highly value the importance of play. Our team works collaboratively to provide quality learning and teaching based on the tamariki’s own interests and uniqueness. The tamariki are empowered to take leadership in their learning, develop their social skills and the confidence to make their own choices, take risks and express themselves.

We use NZ Early Childhood Curriculum Te Whāriki to guide our planning for each individual child. This is an emergent curriculum and encourages tamariki to learn
through free plan both independently and alongside their teachers and peers. We are committed to ongoing evaluation and professional development to ensure we are meeting the needs of all tamariki / whanau.

We are open from 7.30am – 6.00pm.
