At The CubbyHouse Palmerston North we love our celebrations! Some of these include cultural celebrations, national weeks or even just themed dress up days! Matariki, Diwali, Multi Language weeks, pyjama days, earth day and Christmas decorating are just a few of the events you may see celebrated at The CubbyHouse!
Whānau love the collaborative approach at The CubbyHouse Palmerston North, our curriculum reflects our philosophy for nurturing a lifelong love of learning with manaaki and confidence. We love to come together with our tamariki (children) and whānau on parent evenings to share and showcase just what our tamariki are learning at The CubbyHouse.
We are doing our bit to care for our planet at The CubbyHouse Palmerston North through our optional cloth nappy initiative at a small additional cost of $2 a day for over 6 ½ hours and only $1.50 for under 6 ½ hour days.
Regular excursions are offered to our tamariki which gets them out and about in our community and enables them to gain more of a sense of belonging in the world in which they find themselves.
Portfolios & Storypark
We use an awesome app called Storypark, which allows whānau to follow their child’s early learning journey and to ensure you don’t miss out on important communications at The CubbyHouse Palmerston North.
Photos, videos and audio capture your child’s learning so you never miss a treasured moment again. You and your family can also feel more engaged in your child’s development, and you decide who you would like to invite to experience your childs learning journey with you. A perfect way to share those special moments with loved ones down the line or overseas.
Although we love to use Storypark as an online platform to communicate with parents, we also use paper portfolios for each child.
Children enjoy finding their paper portfolio and reflecting on their past activities at our daycare centre in Palmerston North. It is a fantastic way for children to engage in self-recognition and reflect on their personal development, as well as being a treasured keepsake for their 21st Birthday!
