Our Philosophy — Oma Rāpeti, Kumeū

Our Approach

The management and teaching team at Oma Rāpeti, Kumeu take pride in providing a happy, secure and enriching environment where all childrens needs are satisfied in a holistic way, through stimulating and challenging activities and experiences. All our teachers foster respectful, caring and nurturing relationships and provide equal opportunities for children and parents, offering support to enable the children to grow up as confident and competent learners. 

We endeavour to develop strong and lasting relationships within the community, the local schools and the parents and whānau of the children. We provide opportunities for the parents and whānau to include their input into centre documentation (policies, philosophy and programmes.) We encourage parents and whānau to participate actively within the centre programme of teaching and learning.

Our Grounds

At Oma Rapeti, Kumeu we offer a modern, purpose-built facility. Our environments, equipment and resources are carefully chosen to provide stimulating, aesthetically pleasing settings in which children are inspired to learn through exploration and discovery. Our outdoor playgrounds offer a range of age appropriate challenges for each stage of development, combined with spaces for child-directed play.

Committed to inspiring young minds

We value and respect diversity and create environments that encompass all cultures. We also invite parents to enlighten us about their culture their values and beliefs, inviting parents to provide different experiences and activities about their culture. We provide a Reggio inspired programme that enables the children to learn through exploration, inquiry and discovery of the outside world using the environment as the third teacher. 

Children gain knowledge and independence with encouragement from the staff. Our teaching and learning programmes are based on the foundation of the Te Whariki curriculum and Te Tiriti of Waitangi. We take great pride and excitement in providing programmes that enable our children to express their creativity and imagination by offering age appropriate learning experiences based on their interests. At Oma Rāpeti, Kumeu we are a passionate team of management and teachers who are proud to support your children through their early years journey.
