Hapori is held weekly for educators and the children. It is a great opportunity for children to socialize in a larger group and for educators to network with others. Parents/whanau are welcome to come along with their children. We follow a Reggio inspired, inquiry based approach to teaching and learning which follows the children’s interests, encouraging them to question, to inquire, and develop working theories.

Hapori provides an opportunity to bring everyone together and creates stronger links within our programme. Music and the arts are an integral part of this and have helped to further develop and strengthen the relationships that exist within the service. Hapori provides a link between environments – to the educator’s home, the children’s home and the community. Our focus comes from the children, always working towards developing their sense of self, who they are and their place in the wider world, through their relationships with people, places things and time.
