Our Philosophy

What We Believe

Bizzy Kidz is a caring, safe, homely place for your child. Parents/whānau and teachers work in partnership by building genuine relationships to support and guide children’s learning and development. Together as a team, we will provide meaningful learning experiences which ensure independent children, who are healthy in mind (hinengaro), body (tinana) and spirit (wairua).

At Bizzy Kidz, we believe that children:

  • are unique and special
  • are competent and confident learners and communicators
  • will have a sense of belonging within the Bizzy Kidz community
  • will feel safe and nurtured
  • will build responsive and reciprocal relationships with peers and adults, which show respect and care for each other

How We Will Achieve This
  • Children learning through free play and fun activities which are both child and teacher initiated
  • Encouraging children to make their own learning choices and being respectful of their needs
  • A school transition programme which develops children’s literacy and numeracy skills as part of our daily curriculum
  • The Māori concept of ako (reciprocal learning) i.e. teachers and children learning alongside each other
  • Involvement in our community through local walks, library trips,our gym programme, local events and visits from people in our wider community e.g. police, fire
  • Children learning through active exploration to develop their individual strengths and interests
  • Through the daily use of Te Reo Māori and Nga Tikanga Māori to ensure that we have a bicultural programme
  • Celebrating cultural diversity and events, where every child and their family/whānau has a sense of belonging and trust
  • Providing a healthy environment, with a nutritious menu, and stringent hygiene and infection control practices
  • Teaching the children about sustainability through planting and harvesting vegetables and fruit from our garden and recycling
Why We Do It

We put children first. We believe they deserve the best that we can give them every day. New experiences, new learning & new discoveries. The role of a Bizzy Kidz teacher is to support, enhance and extend each child to grow and develop at a pace which is comfortable for them, and prepares them for the next stage of their education.
