At Feathers Early Learning Centre We follow our children’s passions and urges, which is why we have invested in creative, well-resourced, aesthetic and stimulating indoor and outdoor spaces.
We are inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach where the environment is considered as the third teacher.
The arrangement of our space is carefully thought out so that every part of our space tells its purpose. We have balanced out our environment to meet the individual needs of each child. There are places where our tamariki can work in small groups, large groups or individually. Our indoor environment is generally filled with indoor plants and is awash with natural light.
Recycled materials, art objects and treasures contribute to the programme provoking children’s imagination, creativity and wonders.
Separate rooms for under and over twos
We have two separate delicate areas – one is for infants and toddlers aged from three months to two years old and the other is for tamariki aged from two to five years old. Each group has their own indoor and outdoor spaces.
