2020 Review Findings

We’re proud to be recognised as a leading early childhood education centre. Our ERO report highlights include:

  • Aratupu promotes positive learning outcomes for tamariki.

  • Teachers demonstrate a strong commitment to the centre’s philosophy, vision, and values of a socially just and inclusive society – these values are highly evident in practice.

  • Aratupu staff develop supportive, ongoing partnerships with whānau.

  • Tamariki benefit from a richly bicultural curriculum and there is a strong focus on te ao Māori in the learning environment.

  • The centre places an emphasis on respect and caring for each other and the environment.

  • Tamariki under two years of age benefit from a calm, peaceful learning environment.

  • Aratupu tamariki with additional learning needs are well supported to learn and grow.

  • Aratupu draws on strong connections with a wide range of agencies to access additional assistance for children and their whānau.


What Parents Think

“Even though my child is not Māori, I want them to learn about the culture and get a chance to experience the Māori language. Aratupu does this in respectful way, I have learnt a lot myself from being there."
