Little Seed Philosophy

Children, like seeds, are small but rich with possibility. Sow with care and reap healthy young people with enormous ability.

At little Seed Early Learning Centre, we are committed to nurturing the “whole” child in a loving, safe, healthy and holistic environment.

Our ethos

  • To love our children and to protect their future 
  • To care and learn from and of, the land
  • To respect one another including the earth

Our vision:

Is about putting our children and their future first. We believe we have a specific kaitiakitanga “guardianship” role and obligation to families, the environment, and the future generation, ensuring sustainable knowledge and practices continue.

We learn and grow together by practising and embracing many of our guiding values which include Atawhai “kindness and generosity”, respect, love and fairness through our daily practices and relationships in a loving and peaceful environment.
