The Poutama Room
The Poutama Room welcomes children from approx. 2.5 years-5 years. Here, children are able to grow socially from the wonderful connections that can be made across the mixed age group. In addition to shared free play time we also provide opportunities for directed learning activities in smaller groups. The transition to school program has been developed in partnership with our local primary schools to ensure our children in this age group are well prepared for the next stage in their journey. We promote ownership and respect of our natural environment with a focus on holistic learning at all age levels.
Children love the sense of achievement and self awareness that is promoted in this room through the use of gentle expectation and daily routines.
Poutama is the stepped pattern woven in to tukutuku panels that symbolises the various levels of learning and intellectual achievement. Legend says they represent the steps which Tane-o-te-Wananga ascended to the topmost realm in his quest for knowledge.
All the teachers rock! We can't thank you enough for everything you do for our kids - they all absolutely adore you.
The Scribbles team feel like family to us we always feel welcomed when we come in. If any help is needed please do not hesitate to ask... we are always happy to help if we can. Keep up the great work.
I love all of the lovely staff at Scribbles, they really do feel like a happy family down there. And I love that they make my little girl feel like part of it. She loves it and at the end of the day that's all that matters. Thank you so much for everything.
My son has been at Scribbles since November 2015 and I am very happy with the service we get. The teachers are very nurturing/caring and that's what I ask for my baby. His career is fantastic, lovely and kind and he just loves seeing her each morning. Nellie runs a great ship and staff seem to be happy in what they do.
