Children are welcomed into The Farmyard from babies to six year olds. In everything we do, our focus is on the whole child. The rhythms of our environment and our thoughts create an unhurried flow of teaching and learning across the seasons. In this beautiful farmland setting, our children have the opportunity to interact and explore; to express and share; and to reflect, learn and grow: every day.
We believe in the education of the whole child using the head, heart and hands, based on child development. You will see a soft integration of our values illuminated through the early childhood curriculum of Te Whāriki, Steiner Curriculum and with the growth of our Rongo Taiao (Forest Class). We now include the N.Z. Curriculum to further education for five to six year olds, supported by Te Tiriti o Waitangi.
We welcome you to explore further and find out more about The Farmyard.
