Our Vision & Philosophy

Our Vision

To us family is everything and we welcome you and your child into the Creative Cubs whānau. 

Our vision is to provide an environment where children, families and teachers come together as a community of learners to achieve high quality care and education. 

Our Philosophy 

At Creative Cubs children and families are at the heart of what we do.

We believe in providing environments where children feel safe and secure, enabling them to feel happy, capable and confident. 

We value child-led, creative and practical experiences to enhance children’s development across all areas. Children who are actively engaged and involved in their own learning see themselves as competent and capable young people.

We value the arts approach where through imagination, music, dance, drama and visual arts, creativity will flourish amongst children. 

Our calm and nurturing environments offer enriched learning spaces that promote challenge, collaboration, creative synergy, problem solving and active thinking skills. 

Te Whariki underpins our curriculum, as well as incorporating the RIE philosophy, Reggio Emilia and Carl Orff approach. 

We value partnerships with parents, whānau and the community as a collaborative approach.

Our teachers are also life long learners who work alongside and nurture children, to explore and discover their unique interests and strengths. 

We value respectful and inclusive practise where children are seen as unique individuals and learn and grow together.
