Trend Tots incorporate occasions for children to develop their social skills through fun and learning.

Me whiri mai te whānau, te hapū, te iwi, me tauiwi, me ō rātou wāhi nohonga, ki roto i te whāriki, hei āwhina, hei tautoko i te akoranga, i te whakatipuranga o te mokopuna.

The wider world of family and community is an integral part of early childhood curriculum.

We celebrate cultures, Trend Tots organize cultural events and language weeks for children where they could learn, experience and celebrate with the experts. This helps children to learn to respect and acknowledge their and others culture.

Trend Tots educators take children for regular outings to the nearest park, library, garden, art galleries, marae etc., with the parents’ permission, it’s a great way for children to learn to question and explore, understand what’s going on around them, learn new words based on what they see and feel part of the community they live in.

Trend Tots organize children’s excursions such as taking children to the zoo, butter fly creek or Kelly talons helps children understand the importance of taking care of the environment as it has a significant impact on the lives and welfare of animals.
