When my wife and I first learned we were having our first son, we asked around our friends in the childcare industry for recommendations for pre-school care. The answersÂ unanimouslyÂ came back “Tots Corner” they all gave glowing accounts of the staff and the atmosphere there and, when we had our first look around we couldn’t help but agree.
Fast forward five years and #1 son has moved on to Primary school, while his younger brother is busily enjoying his time at Tots.
The staff are fantastic, the atmosphere is welcoming and the kids are loved, cared for and taught in the most amazing ways. The teaching methodology is the Reggio Emilia Approach which I am hugely interested in after seeing the incredible effect it has on our boys problem solving skills and thirst to discover. We feel like we are part of the Tots Family and, once I got over the shock that these guys had no internet presence, I decided to register the domain totscorner.co.nz and, since then – we have set them up with domain based emails and a website.
I still have much to learn from the wonderful people at the center – how they engage, the teaching method and their reactions to the introduction of an online presence. I hope to write more on this as we all learn.
