A place for everyone
At Summerfield there is room to roam and explore. We know the way the physical environment is configured influences how children feel, act, and behave. Providing a safe yet challenging environment enables children to take healthy risks, and to be active explorers. We have 3 distinct centres, Pipi Room (infants and toddlers), Paua Room (toddlers) and Pohutukawa (preschool).
We have an open-door policy and encourage our families to be involved in Summerfield life. We know that early childhood works best when there is a partnership with families, and we believe in sharing the many special moments from the day with you. We know that a collaborative approach between families/whānau and centre helps support children’s learning, accomplishments and long-term achievement and we prioritise these relationships.
Their future, Our Present
Teachers are the heart of Summerfield. They are encouraged to engage in professional discussions and learning and to be part of making the centre the best it can be. They are an integral part of the Summerfield family and we are committed to their ongoing professional learning and development. We recognise the value teachers bring to our centre and appreciating them ensures they are committed to providing the best outcomes for children and their families.
