Our education courses like everything we do, are guided by a strong sense of values. This means our tutors, teachers and YMCA admin staff are qualified to New Zealand standards and will treat you with caring, respect and honesty, and behave responsibly towards you and your needs.
We aim to provide an enriching, open, loving and learning environment which encourages children to work alongside their peers.
Our programmes incorporate the principles of Te Whariki - the Early Childhood Curriculum which focuses on the individual child and the relationships they form with people around them. Staff to child ratios are in accordance with the standards set by the Ministry of Education. In most cases they will exceed these requirements.
The YMCA values are: Respect, Honesty, Caring and Responsibility.
