Children are unique individuals, supported by professional teachers and in partnership with their families, they are encouraged to be curious about our world and their place in it. Parents, as the first educators of their children, are valued for their wealth of diverse talents. Cherry’s Centres are Enviroschools where sustainable practices, both environmentally and ethically, form the foundations of our beliefs and practices. We provide a nurturing and homelike learning environment in a play-garden setting, where the child’s place in nature, and respect for our earth, is valued. Through waiata, te reo and tikanga maori our children appreciate the bicultural heritage that is theirs as young New Zealanders.
