About Us

Philosophy

Every new experience is an opportunity to learn and grow; childhood is the most critical time to build physical, mental and emotional foundations for their future learning and development.

At Melodies Preschool we have dedicated, qualified, experienced staff to ensure a safe, kind and friendly environment, where your child has the opportunity to grow and develop a love for life long learning.  We believe that children learn and develop through practical experiences and provide a wide range of high quality resources and facilities where children can explore and discover at their own pace.

Within our programme we adopt Te Whariki Early Childhood Curriculum, Carl Orff’s Approach for teaching music,dance and drama and also your child’s individual interests to create fun, meaningful and holistic learning experiences.

Since the beginning of time, children have not liked to study.  They would much rather play, and if you have their interests at heart you will let them learn while they play; they will find that what they have mastered is child’s play.
