Cathy Baine runs a literacy enrichment and extension programme at Hamilton East School. Cathy uses Miracle Toys’ magnetic puzzles in her learning programme. “Our children live in a visual world. I think that’s why the Miracle Toys magnets work so well,” she says. “The children find them colourful, bright, fun and easy-to-use.”

Miracle Toys’ educational resources are designed around the five strands of New Zealand’s early childhood curriculum Te Whaariki:

Well-being – The health and well-being of the child are protected and nurtured.

Belonging – Children and their families feel a sense of belonging.

Contribution – Opportunities for learning are equitable and each child’s contribution is valued.

Communication – The languages and symbols of their own and other cultures are promoted and protected.

Exploration – The child learns through active exploration of the environment.
