Our tamariki and whānau feel a sense of belonging at Busy Bees Feilding, and we welcome new families in, to feel right at home too.  We offer nutritious, home-cooked meals and a backyard play area for our tamariki.  Our teachers live locally, which supports our strong sense of community and comfortable and welcoming environment. Our centre provides nurturing and stimulating environments for young children with its separate nursery and preschool rooms, as well as areas where tamariki can come together to share tuakana-teina (older-younger child) interactions where wonderful teaching moments are shared. We aim to promote the development and learning of each child, through positive partnership with parents and open communication at all times for family, tangata whenua, whānau, and community. 

Our Rooms

Busy Bees Feilding has three classrooms that cater to differing age and developmental stages of young children.

Koru is our infant room, focused on teachers and infants building strong relationships with each other within a primary care partnership.  Teachers support children to feel loved, safe, and secure by giving them individualised care and support. Teachers also aim to establish close relationships with parents and caregivers to better understand your infants routines and rhythms, and take pride in mimicking these in centre. The infant and toddler outside environment is shared so that when your child transitions to Mangopare - Toddlers, they are familiar with the teachers and children already, supporting a smooth transition to the next step in their learning journey. 

Mangopare, our toddler environment, caters to children that are ready for the next challenge! This classroom grows children's self-help skills such as learning to grow independence in washing hands, serving their own water, learning to put their hats on, and challenging their minds and bodies with sensory and tactile experiences for growing bodies. Teachers build primary care relationships to understand how best to support your child and work with you to plan education goals for them. 

Roimata Kuru is our Preschool that allows growing preschoolers to immerse themselves in curriculum areas that support their innate urges. All children are born with a style of learning that suits them best. Roimata Kuru teachers use sensitive observation to understand how your child's learning is best supported. Roimata Kuru offers a Forest School Trip for children to learn about being kaitiaki's of the natural world. When your child turns four, they will attend a daily Fun @ Four session to build the learning dispositions that are needed for lifelong learning, and to prepare their bodies and minds for their transition to school. When your child is closer to heading off to school, they will be provided an opportunity to visit a local school to understand what a classroom environment might be like, strengthening their learner identity before starting school. 

Our in-house chef supply a wide variety of nourishing meals for the children at our centre, providing foods that are minimally processed, avoiding recipes that are high in added sugar, instead using fresh, real and wholesome ingredients. 

We do baking with the children from time to time, which provides them opportunities to engage and learn a range of food preparations skills and fine motor movements such as pouring, sifting, spooning. It is a great hands on sensory experience for children to develop independence through self-help skills, practice simple maths as they measure and count quantities. 

We are committed to follow the aspirations of the New Zealand National ECE Curiculum, Te Whāriki. Te Whāriki envisages kaiako in early learning settings working in partnership with parents, whānau and community to realise this vision. The expectation is that, in their early years, children will experience a curriculum that empowers them as lifelong learners, right from their early exploration of the world around them, through to preparation for school.
