Welcome to Weka Pre-School, where Learning and Discovery come's Alive.... offering quality Childcare in Winton, Southland
Weka's Uniqueness ....
Weka is a privately owned, managed, one off environment established in two beautiful villa's side by side.
Within the villas' is homely furnishings, natural resources, hidden treasures, cosy nooks, and an abundance of discovery opportunities within each learning lounge. Each Villa has learning lounge's inside and outside designed to cater for age appropriate learning, allowing children to learn at their own pace.
At Weka each child and their whanau's emotional happiness and security is paramount. We are committed to maintaining a peaceful and unhurried environment where children can foster a wonderful understanding and value for relationships, nga hononga, with kaiako, with tamariki and with the community.
Working together Step by Step....
Choosing the right early childhood centre for your family and whanau is a huge decision, this could even be recognised as one of the most important choices you will make for your child and your family/whanau.
At Weka we have an open door policy allowing you to make that connection before committing to enrolment. The value put on connecting with the environment and feeling a sense of belonging the moment you walk in the door should be felt as a place you could belong too and could in-trust one of the most important humans in your life - your child. We view your trust in us as a gift, a gift of trust, respect and value in the education and care we will provide for you all.
Bringing the wonder of learning to life....
The simple joy found in a spider web, puddle, rock or a stick always amazes us. The children at Weka play in nature every day.
They also learn everyday. They learn to be confident. They learn to cooperate. They learn to be curious and they learn to communicate.
These are foundational skills. We believe that for a young child, play is important work! Nature allows children to investigate and be creative in their play in a complex manner that also invites them to problem solve and strengthen foundational life skills.
Nature is a gift to us all, we are honoured to have such a beautiful and bountiful gift surrounding us. We hope to honor our children by instilling in them a love of nature, and a peace within themselves that they may connect with later in life because of their early experiences.
