Teresa Maree Smith

Greymouth, West Coast

Relationships with children, family and the wider community are top priorities for Teresa. She ensures that strong and respectful relationships are established with all members of the learning community so that there are clear and open lines of communication.​ She believes that it is a privilege to partner with parents in raising their children, and their education and well-being is a shared responsibility.
Teresa also believes that children deserve an environment filled with wonder and beauty. She sees the environment as the ‘third teacher.’  Her objective is to provide a beautiful learning environment which invites tamariki to explore and interact with the wonder of Creation. This includes providing open-ended materials for children to explore, creating a place where creativity and creative thinking is encouraged and cherished. Teresa provides children with a wide variety of natural resources and outdoor scenery aids in order for them to develop a healthy body, soul and spirit. This provides a rich platform, engaging all the senses, inviting the child to wonder about the world in which they live.

He taonga te mokopuna, kia whāngaia, kia tipu, kia rea - A child is a treasure, to be nurtured, to grow, to flourish
