What We Do
What We Do
Pascals St Albans is a family orientated team who value authentic interactions and relationships. Family is the forefront of who we are and what we believe in. Our philosophy is shaped by our family values, our teaching family and Te Whariki*, Te reo Maori and Tikanga are woven into our daily practice.
We believe in a programme that values a child’s choice, where learning and play is child initiated. We provide an environment where relationships are valued and supported by primary caregiving. Relationships create a sense of belonging which allows children to venture out, take risks, ask questions, problem solve, make choices and explore their knowledge knowing they feel safe and secure.
Our relationships and interactions are respectful and inclusive. Respect at Pascals St Albans means empowering and valuing everyone’s thoughts, feelings and contributions. We encourage all akonga and whanau to have responsibility, be responsible, take responsibility and share responsibility in learning and leadership.
We support open communication which allows us to hear children’s hopes, dreams, fears, successes, and failures without judgment. It allows us to hear family and whanau aspirations and beliefs and for these to be reflected in our programme.
