Kiwi Supertots Learning Centres
Kiwi Supertots Learning Centre, Botany is licensed for 135 children with a maximum of 25 up to two years of age. The centre is divided into age-related rooms. Each room has its own teaching team, routine, outdoor play area and age-appropriate resources. The site provides for a school holiday and before/after school programme.
The centre serves a culturally diverse community. Many children speak languages other than English. Most children are of Indian heritage with smaller numbers of children who are Asian, Pākehā, Māori or Pacific. The centre philosophy fosters an inclusive teaching approach within a nurturing environment. It promotes high quality education and a strong foundation for children's learning and development.
This is one of three Kiwi Supertots centres owned by the director and consultant. The regional manager is supported by an area manager and a centre supervisor. The centre employs 12 teachers, seven are fully registered and five are provisionally registered.
The 2014 ERO report noted that leaders provided good support for teachers to develop assessment, curriculum planning and evaluation. Self-review, parent partnership and the appraisal process were identified as improvement priorities. Good progress has been made in these areas.
