Q. Why would I choose a mixed age centre?
A. Benefits of a mixed age centre include, younger children engaging in more challenging opportunities and older children learning empathy caring for and watching over their younger peers (tuakana-teina). This is especially wonderful when it is their sibling and it comforting for families knowing their children are together throughout the day. A mixed age setting also allows children to maintain a familiar environment and teachers, with no big, upsetting transitions between rooms, as well as taking developmental steps when they are ready, rather than when they are of a certain age.
