We are proud of our diverse community at Smiley Faces. We have families from all parts of the world – Africa, South America, Asia and Europe as well as the Pacific. We seek to learn about, respect, and celebrate all the cultures we have with us.
We provide a welcoming cultural environment for Māori and Pakeha (non-Māori) tamariki. As well as English, all tamariki will develop familiarity with Māori language and traditions through our use of te reo Māori, tikanga, waiata and karakia in our daily practice.
