Our Philosophy

The City Heights Group of Early Childhood Centres strives to provide warm and attentive care and holistic education of the highest quality for Māori children and all children of Aotearoa. Our culture and environment aims to reflect the values of our whanau and enrich and enhance the knowledge, skills and dispositions children bring to the centre. Through collaboration with families and a Montessori based philosophy, we aim to develop competent learners secure in their sense of belonging, contribution and value to society.
