Opening early 2020

Progress is underway for our state of the art early learning school. Please visit this page to see how the school is progressing.

  • Confident and involved learners

    We aim for all our early learning students to become confident and involved learners, who grow and develop.

    We provide flexible, open-ended activity-based experiences, where learning is often in the form of projects so children have opportunities to explore, observe, hypothesise, question and discuss to clarify their understanding.

  • A positive foundation for learning

    We introduce children to a love of learning at a young age by creating opportunities for them to explore, experiment, solve problems and express themselves as individuals.

    Our programme is inspired by the Reggio Emilia educational philosophy and the New Zealand Early Childhood curriculum, Te Whariki. The structured approach to learning which includes music specialist teaching, will ensure children are well prepared for the next stage of their educational journey – primary school.

  • A world-class environment

    The early learning school has been custom designed to create a physical environment that encourages curiosity and enjoyment.

    Every space has been carefully created to stimulate a child’s imagination, so they can be creative to discover new skills and interests under the safe supervision of our teachers.

  • Smooth transition to primary

    Our expert teachers maintain a rich classroom environment where students are challenged to learn and explore to ensure their readiness for school. Children are also taught that respect for everyone else is important.

    Early Learning students will have priority entrance* into ACG Parnell’s primary school.
