Our Vision

At Littletoetoes, we aim to provide a fun, stimulating and inviting environment where children are happy and cared for by warm motivated educators. With a positive attitude, our teachers help in scaffolding children’s learning by following children's interests in different areas and offering them new supplementary challenges. We provide age appropriate and challenging experiences for our Tamariki. We believe that learning is best achieved through respectful and responsive interactions with children/whanau and staff by sharing cultural knowledge to nurture the child's holistic well-being.


Our Philosophy

At Littletoetoes we believe that all children have the right to learn and practice their home languages and cultural values. Therefore, we promote collaborative relationships with parents, where contribution and participation are encouraged to support continuity in values, beliefs, customs and traditions.

We respect the individuality of children by providing opportunities for their own ideas to flourish in a peaceful and secure environment in order to enhance their self-esteem and confidence. We have a strong focus on nurturing and empowering children’s physical, intellectual, social, emotional and spiritual well-being.We acknowledge learning as a holistic process, in which “our little people” build skills, knowledge and understanding of the world around them through a play-based programme, interwoven within the wider context of family, home and community.

Here is a home away from home!
