We believe in developing strong ongoing relationships with families and whānau, encouraging them to actively participate in their children’s holistic development, knowledge and ongoing learning.
We aim to give children a sense of belonging, with rights and a sense of responsibility for the rights of others. This happens when children in our environment are nurtured and supported with positive interactions, programmes that meet individual needs, foster independence and provide for small groups and a focus on skills for school.
We acknowledge that we serve a multicultural society, valuing all cultures and working alongside and with our families in an inclusive environment. We are committed to working with children with learning difficulties, working with the Ministry of Education special education team to support their needs. We value and are committed to implementing Te Tiriti o Witangi principles and Maori as Tangata Whenua.
Superstart Childcare was established in 2002, then in 2009 we moved to a purpose built location in East Tamaki. Our location in an industrial area makes us unique, easy to access, and has inspired us to create an edible garden surrounding our playgrounds. It also supports our commitment to encourage our children and their families to choose healthy options relating to food. Our garden enhances the landscape of the area.
Our mission is creating a welcoming, caring and creative learning environment that empower all learners to reach their highest potential.
Our long term vision is to be recognised for our environment, the cultural diversity we offer the quality of our service and to realise our mission statement:
“ENCOURAGING OUR STARS TO DEVELOP WINGS”
