Our Centre Rules

Posted by on 7 May 2012

In the past few weeks, our teachers have been reinforcing centre rules to children to help them become more comfortable and feel more belonged to the centre setting, and at the same time “building up their confidence and ability to express their ideas and to assist others” (Te Whāriki, Belonging, Goal 2, 1996). Praise God! we have been seeing children making other children feeling welcomed and belonged as they learnt to care for themselves, to help others with self-care skills, and to make new children feel comfortable with the centre’s regularities and customs, for example, we saw children holding hands to go wash hands together before morning tea, children taking their shoes off before sleeping time.

Some children in the centre are still learning the centre’s rules and routines, and as we support them, they develop an increasing responsibility for their own self-care, and the care of their learning environment and becoming more confident in identifying and expressing their needs and the needs of others, for example, children saying goodbye when friends got picked up, children tidying up together after play, children speaking softly with each other while reading books together.
