Our Philosophy

Sunny Days Philosophy

Sunny Days provides an environment that is nurturing, friendly, safe and secure through:

  • A holistic programme that offers routines which are flexible;
  • Experiences which are varied and challenging; and
  • Offers opportunities for exploration and thinking

Our future focused education develops life skills, self-esteem, and communication skills through a respect for and enjoyment of the natural environment and living things. Learning and development is noticed, recognised and responded to in ways that are meaningful and build on strengths.

We value parents and whānau involvement, acknowledging that they know their children best and are respected for their personal beliefs and cultures. Our practices are inclusive of Māori and acknowledge different cultures of the families participating in the life of the centre.

“Sunny Days children have the opportunity to socialise, learn and have fun and our purpose built environment offers children free access to a wide variety of learning experiences.”
