Well Placed to Promote Positive Learning
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."
