Fame offers children all of the wonderful opportunities you'd expect of any high quality preschool, along with a unique focus on performing arts and creative fun.
Fame Preschool is all about.....
- Qualified teachers with caring, friendly and nurturing natures. Our family of teachers have a sound knowledge of child development and a strong commitment to ongoing professional development.
Performing and Creative Arts
Each morning during the term time we have a specialist teacher come to our centre to lead our music, drama and dance sessions. Each age group has the opportunity to join in, with the support of their teachers, and they are exposed to a variety of methods, styles, and instruments, to develop skills, gain confidence and most of all have FUN!!! At the end of every term children also have the opportunity to participate in our end of term productions.
- Dance classes offer them a fantastic introduction to dance where they enjoy a themed class in which they are able to learn the basics of dance - skips, jumps, gallops etc while using exciting props such as wands, scarf’s, swords and more to help them develop creativity and instruments to help develop a sense of rhythm.
- Music classes will engage children by using a variety of instruments, music and props . They will learn about music and singing while working toward a piece for the end of term production.
- Drama classes will encourage children to engage their imaginations while building a firm foundation for performance, speaking in public and learning about how to have fun while working within a group to prepare a show.
Our teachers provide a developmentally appropriate programme and an innovative curriculum, devised specifically for your child, in a stimulating, fun and caring environment.
All children will have the opportunity to participate in daily group sessions, where they will be introduced to a variety of developmentally appropriate activities. See our 3 & 4 Year Old page for more information about their program.
Our Fame family of teachers put a lot of time and effort into creating beautiful and interesting individualised portfolios for each of our unique children. We keep these in folders in the centre, and also post them to Storypark where you can view them privately online and post comments. You will also be able to post your own stories too if you want to, and over time this builds a beautiful record of your little one's childhood.
Computers, cameras, tablets and other ICT will be available for all children to use when appropriate for their learning
Fame Preschool Community
We have a passion for developing a community feel within our centre. Providing fantastic opportunities for parents and children to socialise and make new friends at our Family Events such as – fish ‘n’chip nights, mum’s weekend away, cultural dinners, camping trips, our Christmas party and much more.
Fame Preschool Philosophy
At Fame preschool it is our mission to provide a warm, stable environment for children where their social, emotional and educational needs are met.
We believe that nurturing/fostering children’s self confidence is the key foundation to developing competent individuals. Through our Performing Arts programme children will be affirmed and encouraged as creative individuals.
Community and whanaungatanga* is of the highest importance; we feel that through respectful, fun and reciprocal relationships between staff, children, parents/caregivers and whanau, we can teach children the importance of truly valuing others and in turn themselves.
We will stimulate growth, ideas and creativity in a caring and loving atmosphere where children are encouraged to think for themselves, in an inclusive environment without discrimination.
Children’s educational needs will be fostered through group planning, Individual Development Portfolios, and our closely monitored specialised language programmes. We recognize the need for children to learn firstly from their own points of interest thus helping them to become passionate lifelong learners, while also encouraging children to activity involve themselves in some structured work and preparing them for their transition to school.
Management and Educators at Fame Preschool aim to help your child/ren realise their full potential to enjoy a successful future in our community.
