Maintaining strong relationships between parents’, whanau and Little Sparks, helps us all to support the development and cater for the holistic needs of the child. At Little Sparks we acknowledge and embrace each child’s diversity and see ourselves as a multi-cultural community of learners.

We see children as decision makers and contributors within the community and our leaders of tomorrow.

Every child learns by participating in hands on activities to develop a keen mind and a co-operative and kindred spirit.

Every child develops best in a nurturing environment with good quality teachers who act as facilitators, mentors, and counsellors, who work hand in hand with parents, caregivers and whanau to ensure their aspirations and vision are heard and shared.

We provide children opportunities to grow and excel in an environment that is explorative and inquisitive.

We believe that each child is unique.  Uncovering a child’s talents, or simply sharing in his or her flights of fantasy, is a joy and a privilege to be part of.

We offer quality early childhood care and education in a safe and nurturing environment. Maori Tikanga practices like Manakitanga, whanaungatanga and ako  embedded for our Maori mokopuna, whanau, hapu and iwi.

We are committed to developing respectful relationships, valuing open communication and promoting inclusiveness in all that we do.  We acknowledge Te Tiriti O Waitangi as the founding document of Aotearoa New Zealand, and are committed to embracing our bi-cultural heritage.

Providing quality education and care is at the heart of what we do.  Children are our taonga, they are first and foremost our number one priority as we provide the foundations of lifelong learning.
