At The Learning Centre we are inspired by the principles of Magda Gerber’s Educaring approach and Pikler and operate under the guidelines of the New Zealand early childhood curriculum - Te Whaariki.
The principles of Magda Gerber’s Educaring Approach and the Pikler philosophies are that the focus is on the child.
TLC values the importance of relationships and builds on respectful interactions between children and educators. The focus of Te Whaariki is also on the child and how we value the different relationships children can learn from as they grow and develop.
Together Te Whaariki, Pikler and Magda Gerber’s Educaring Approach create a curriculum with an emphasis on education and care.
