NIKAU (1-2 years)

Our Nikau room, we work closely with our Fern room and support families to make the transition into our room as smooth as possible. We value open and direct communication, as this is the building blocks in forming a great reciprocal new relationship, and to strengthen an interactive atmosphere whilst maintaining a focus on the love and care our infants need to thrive.


Our environment is joined with Fern, providing a beautiful outdoor environment. Nikau rooms learning journey is extended through the schematic approach, and open ended and sensory materials that can be manipulated and moved as our children see fit. We also work with in the Reggio and RIE approaches, unhurried and responsive relationships.


You are welcome to catch up with us daily, face-to-face about your child’s day at drop off and pick up time. We use Storypark to share photos, videos and audio of your child’s development so you never miss out on those special moments. Storypark also offer a handy mobile app so can have updates right to your smartphone.
