YMCA Hamilton Early Childhood Curriculum


Find out more about our early childhood curriculum at YMCA Hamilton Early Learning Centre

Our aim is to educate children in a safe, caring environment, where they can have a blast.

Our early childhood curriculum follows the Te Whariki Early Childhood Curriculum, set by the Ministry of Education. From this we want our children to become competent, confident learners, who are healthy in their mind, body and spirit. We also want them to realise that they make a contribution to society that is valued.

It is important to us that kids learn holistically, which is encompassed by Te Whariki’s values of empowerment/whakamana, family and community/whanau tangata, relationships/nga hononga, and holistic development/kotahitanga.

We take care to include these principles throughout our early learning programmes, whether we are going on a fun trip or creating a piece of art.
