Welcome to Busy Bees Southbrook 

We are so fortunate to be a part of the wonderful Rangiora community, in North Canterbury, participating in local celebrations, supporting local businesses and events such as making scarecrows for the Rangiora Food Garden and participating in the Woodend Spring Fair and Santa Parade each year. Through this connection we get to know our individual families so well.

Busy Bees Southbrook kaiako and whānau form strong trusting relationships which support well settled tamariki to take on transitions with ease. We strive to create a sense of belonging, welcoming new families in as part of our childcare centre whānau.

Our large natural and inviting centre environment, here at Busy Bees Southbrook, offers a secret garden which is a real favourite with our tamariki.  A place of learning where we grow and cultivate fruit, herbs and vegetables, and where children can smell, touch, taste and, explore with their senses.

Our spacious outdoors also provides many opportunities for gross motor development as well as encouraging kaitiakiship, as tamariki learn and discover more about their natural environment and how to care for and look after it.

Exploring and strengthening connections with our local community is something our tamariki really enjoy.  It provides so many learning opportunities as children practice following instructions, finding things to research, and exploring the world around them using their senses. Our regular and planned excursions also provide great learning about health and safety whilst out and about in the community, seeing new things and meeting new people and developing working theories about the world around us. 

Cultivating whānau and cultural relationships 

At Busy Bees Southbrook we love to invite parents and whānau to be a part of our programme in any way they feel most comfortable being involved. We hold lots of family events and parent evenings to provide opportunities to strengthen partnerships. We seek to understand, support and celebrate our families cultures and valuesproviding an inclusive environment where family aspirations can be realised. 

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.

All 3 of my kids have been to this preschool. So welcoming and helpful with each individual child's needs. Lovely atmosphere for each child to play and learn
