At Little Blue Penguin, children, educators, parents, whānau and leaders will collaborate to co-design an exceptional programme with the same goal in mind:
As a Christchurch-based mum, passionate early childhood educator, and keen researcher I had a vision to create a truly exceptional and unique learning space for children to learn, grow, discover and develop in a natural, home away from home setting.
Our Nursery is a small, homely space designed for younger babies to explore and develop freely. We practice primary caregiving, so each baby has their own teacher who is available to meet their individual needs.
Our Preschool focuses on inquiry-based learning; the natural curiosity of young children is stimulated as they take an active role in the education process by exploring their environment to make inquiries and discoveries. Skilled teachers then guide this process in a way that supports the children’s own ideas and extends their learning.
Little Blue Penguin values holistic development and places importance on a nurtured well-being in order for meaningful learning to take place.
