In Just 4 Kids children are supported and challenged to become confident and competent learners secure in their sense of belonging and in the knowledge that they make a valued contribution to the world.

Just 4 Kids Philosophy

  • We focus on learning alongside others.  The Māori concept of ako (life long learners) informs our holistic approach to development.
  • When teaching we build on a child’s personal interests to make their learning relevant and enriched with literacy, numeracy and positive social interactions.
  • We encourage working alongside of peers and incorporate the tuakana-teina framework (older children helping the younger children).
  • Our programme is built around routines, rituals and expectations while being part of a group – mahi tahi (group work & co-operation).
  • We aim to have a true partnership between J4K and our  families/whanau – ensuring the well-being of your children and providing them with the best learning aspirations and outcomes.

We endeavour to work alongside our local schools to ensure that our children have a smooth transition.

Our teachers provide continuity of care and education for our children.  This leads to a feeling of safety, belonging and reciprocal relationships.

Ehara taku toa I te toa takitahi engari he tao takitini
I come not with my own strengths but bring with me the gifts, talents and strengths of my family, tribe and ancestors.
