Bizzy Bodz will advocate for our tamariki to value and know who they are and to excel by offering a learning journey within a nurturing environment.
We will demonstrate inclusiveness, trust, respect, empathy, integrity and aroha as we will hold these values to be at the heart of our being. Being tamariki led and whanau centred allows the tamariki, whãnau and staff to learn from one another, by embedding Te Reo me õna Tikanga through all learning opportunities.
We will show a genuine interest in every child and their whãnau. Whãnau input is not only welcomed but encouraged and we will share the tamariki’s journey and experiences every day.
Our focus for strengthening tamariki’s whole being is to support;
Ko Wai Au – to understand, acknowledge and accept who we are
Communication – to recognise and communicate thoughts, ideas and emotions effectively and appropriately
Resilience – to be able to identify and solve problems, to progress independence and responsibility and to develop an ability to establish and maintain respectful relationships
We believe that Whãnaungatanga binds people together through building effective relationships and the whakapapa of each child will be celebrated within the centre and amongst our community, to promote a sense of belonging.
Our teachers will model acceptable behaviours and will be given on-going professional development opportunities to model continual improvement as life-long learners.
