Ko te manu e kai ana I te miro nona te ngahere. Ko te manu e kai ana I te matauranga nona te ao.
The bird that eats the miro berry, his is the forest. The bird that eats education, his is the world.
This whakatauki reflects our belief in the wonder of early childhood and the importance of the natural environment.
