The tamariki in this room are often learning to toilet train, are still sleeping and are  learning the routines and rituals of   Riverton Childcare. There is an adult:child ratio of 1:8 in this room.

Welcome

navigators

The Navigators are our oldest tamariki, some who have been with us since they were tiny. They are our 4 and 5 year olds. The goals of the Navigators room are to increase their  independence, strengthen their willingness to give things a try, and to develop their  school-readiness. These children are in the west end of our original building. They have their own  learning space, their own  mat and mealtimes  and  special jobs to help  around the Childcare to improve  the tuākana/tēina relationships. 

They share  the  outdoor area with the Adventurers and there is an adult:child ratio of 1:10 in this room.
