Leaps and Bounds is a privately owned and operated centre. We operate under the Ministry of Education Regulations 2008 and we aim to provide high quality care, teaching and relationships for our children and families in a safe and nurturing environment.
Our Nursery offers a peaceful and safe exploration space for children aged three months to around two years. In the nursery there is an emphasis placed on relationships and fostering trust, unconditional love and acceptance. We provide flexibility within predictability and offer children individual and group learning experiences.
Our Foundation Room provides a programme especially developed for two years olds. We offer new opportunities for movement and independence, while developing respect for others and the environment. There are predictable happenings throughout the day, indoor/outdoor flow and children will be introduced to Practical Life concepts.
The Montesori Classroom offers full access to Montessori equipment and teachings, specifically designed to maximise independent learning and exploration for children aged 3-6 years. Children experience the freedom to work independently on activities of their choice with respectful guidence from Montessori trained teachers. Children are provided opportunities to develop social competence alongside peers as they move through the Montessori curriculum in preparation for school.
“At Leaps and Bounds we switch our children’s brains on to learning when we reinforce our YES YES I CAN! Motto everyday. Having a ‘can do’ attitude towards life empowers children to succeed through perseverance and self belief”
