Happy Tots early childhood education focuses on –

An individualised home based approach to early childhood education and learning

The Happy Tots Home-based Early Learning program is personal teaching in action. Every teacher creates an individual development plan(IDP) for each child’s unique interests and learning ability, triggering your child’s passion for learning. Through the Happy Tots early childhood learning program, every child receives a detailed Learning Journey documenting your child's strengths, interests and abilities to get them ready for school.

Each child will be assigned to a registered qualified early childhood Coordinator. Your Coordinator will provide monthly curriculum planning with an IDP (Individual Development Plan) to extend children’s interest with a tailor-made preschool learning experience. You may contact your teacher regarding any questions or concerns you may have.

We are supported by Ministry of Education and partner with a leading New Zealand family coach to offer regular early childhood education presentations and training to all our parents, families, whānau and educators.

The Parent Advisory Committee is a great way to encourage parents and preschool teachers to regularly participate in programme planning, activities and policy review – we love the parents to be involved in Happy Tots.

Outings and Preschool Activities

Happy Tots organize free outings at regular basis to different preschool children attractions in Auckland, such as Animal farms, local Marae, Silverdale Fun Park . This will provide children a great opportunity to interact with other children to enhance their social and communication skills. This is also a good opportunity for parents and educators to communicate with other families to share education experience and for networking.

Educating the Educator
