Every child is nurtured at Little Feet Preschool, Auckland

Every child is valued and nurtured at Little Feet Preschool, Auckland

Little Feet Preschool is a privately owned centre located near Sylvia Park in Mount Wellington, Auckland.

It was opened in 1998 and the centre welcomes all families and children and provides an attractive and well maintained learning environment. The children enjoy respectful relationships with staff and peer (tuakana/teina) relationships between children are encouraged.

Children attend the full day, morning or afternoon sessions, allowing parents to use the 20 free hour provision for children over three years. We provide all meals and also play an important role in creating a culture of healthy eating and in helping children to develop the healthy food behaviours that will support them to grow into healthy adults.

Every child comes to school with a unique personality and learning style and Little Feet preschool features a team of highly trained staff who provide the children with a safe, fun environment where they can express themselves creatively. The children have access to a huge outdoor area, very good resources and a wide range of interesting and appropriate activities. They enjoy the centres well organised and attractive environment.

Little Feet also caters for up to eight babies. Each one of them receives personal attention in a warm nurturing environment that is tailored to suit their individual needs. The team at Little Feet is professionally trained to observe and enhance your babies’ developmental skills.

Little Feet Preschool aims to be a centre which works in partnership with whanau to enhance their child’s learning journey, as we value their input as the people who know their children best. It has a weekly curriculum which is based on Te Whariki principles. These principles, aims and goals, are an integrated approach woven from Te Whariki to have a holistic approach to the centre’s curriculum. Children at Little Feet are observed in their play and as a result the curriculum is based on those observations. This means that it is stimulating and flexible and designed to meet the changing needs of the children in care.
