Transition to School

Our aspiration is for our four year old tamariki to develop a genuine love for learning in an environment where they feel empowered, safe and secure. We endeavour to make our Transition to school fun so that children want to be involved and contribute to the group learning. We want our children to have a strong sense of self-esteem and self-belief and to build resilience so that when challenges arise they are equipped with strategies to overcome them. We want tamariki to learn how to learn, by asking questions, and finding creative ways to discover knowledge. 

We want our tamariki to be the leaders of their learning and develop a love for wonder and discovery with teachers there to provide an educated nudge and extension. Our transition programme is a daily extension on the children’s wealth of knowledge and interests.
