Many parents choose a group early childhood centre for their child because they want their child to gain social skills outside of the immediate family and make more friends. At Kidditech children from age 2 up to school age have the opportunity to play and learn alongside one another. The younger children enjoy learning new skills from the older ones and the older children embrace the leadership role they play nurturing the younger children – Tuakana teina. The small number of children and great teacher/child ratios in our preschool environment allow children to build and grow friendships supported by respectful teachers. Many children build long term friendships and parents enjoy weekend play dates and birthday party dates further growing peer relationship which is wonderful.
