Our Philosophy

It is our aim to provide the best possible care and learning opportunities for children with quality teachers and educational resources. Seeds & Sprouts provides opportunities for your child to experience full social development and a wide range of stimulating activities.

At Seeds and Sprouts we endeavour to provide the best holistic care for Tamariki aged between 0 to 5; focussing on their physical, emotional, social, cultural, cognitive, and spiritual needs. This is best achieved through play and connection with others, the environment in which we live and instilling Te Ao Māori kaupapa of Tuakana – Teina in which we foster respect for those younger than us.

Tamariki are Taonga and at Seeds and Sprouts we believe they are capable, vital, and important global citizens with their own unique journey in which we are their facilitators for learning and growing.

This is developed through growing authentic, reciprocal relationships between Whānau, Tamariki, Kaiako, and our local community. We also believe these relationships go hand in hand with respect for the environment as our third teacher and that our Tamariki are kaitiaki alongside us.
