Kamalei Early Years (from 6 weeks to 3 years)

The Early Years is home to children ranging in age from 6 weeks to 3 years.

Our learning environment reflects a home like environment that is warm, loving and welcoming. We consider children as capable builders of their own knowledge and the adults are facilitators, educators and co-learners. Children and educators together engage in collaborative decision making about the curriculum. Children are free to explore a range of experiences provided each day.

Our curriculum also explores ways of being connected to the land; gardens, animals, growing our own food, responsible use of water and energy, minimizing waste, fair trade, recycling, and environmental health – reducing chemical use.

We have three rooms at The Early Years and children are placed in these rooms depending not only on age but also development and where we feel the child is best suited for optimal positive outcomes.

From The Early Years our children graduate to the Preschool, where the curriculum has a focus on preparing them for ‘Big School’.

If you have questions, please give us a call. We would love to hear from you.
