Our Philosophy

At Nurture Me Education we believe that children learn best in a natural home environment that values play as a foundation for learning. We facilitate a programme that encourages all tamariki - all children - to grow, explore, and challenge themselves at their own pace, guided by Te Whariki, the New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum

We value all tamariki/children as individuals, acknowledging their own interests and dispositions and the importance of respectful, inclusive relationships.

We acknowledge each family is different and value the three way partnership between family, educator and service. Working alongside our educators to support them in their training and facilitation of learning to become confident kaiako is important to us in growing our Nurture Me community.

We acknowledge the founding document Te Tiriti O Waitangi and commit to incorporating Te Reo and Tikanga Maori in our curriculum delivery. We value partnership with our whanau and encourage participation, working together in one waka.

We are licensed by the Ministry of Education to provide support and training for children age 0-5 who are looked after in the home by either a nanny, au pair, grandparent, or in-home educator.
