At Treetops, our teaching is inspired by the Reggio Emilia educational Pukekohe Kindy and the Pikler philosophy and our practice is based on the principles of Te Whariki (The Early Childhood Curriculum) which addresses wellbeing, belonging, contribution, communication, and exploration. 

  • The Reggio Emilia approach focuses on each child as a competent learner. Children are curious, creative, and full of potential. Our approach at Treetops is child-centred and our curriculum focuses on inquiry learning.
  • Learning respect and responsibility through discovery and play are essential elements in Reggio Emilia. We believe that children have rights and should be given appropriate responsibilities and opportunities to develop their potential.
  • The Reggio Emilia approach believes that children have a ‘hundred languages’ to use in communication and learning. These ‘languages’ could be drama, sculpture or painting and children express needs, interests, and abilities using a variety of creative and fun ways.
  • The learning environment is the third ‘teacher’ where children get to explore their ideas, test their theories, question, observe, and clarify their understanding of the world.
  • Our children are encouraged to make sense of their world in their own way, at their own time.
  • We honour Te Tiriti O Waitangi as the foundational document of Aotearoa by actively promoting Tikanga Maori and Te Reo Maori in our planned experiences.

Our teachers are constantly engaged in on-going professional development to ensure high-quality teaching practices that offer the best outcomes for your child.
