Ngā Pēpī Manu-Transition to School
Kia ora, Kia Orana Talofa lava & greetings whānau,
Our Ngā Pēpī Manu programme supports your tamariki during their transition to primary school life. Every child adapts differently when finding a sense of belonging in new environments, all who are involved should make this a positive experience. We will work together to create a plan and timetable that will suit the needs of the child and family.
Our programme will run Monday to Thursday from 9am-1.30pm. The number of visits we recommend before starting school is six weeks. In the first three weeks visits will be two times a week and the last three weeks, visits will be three times a week. If there is a need for more visits to support the transition, that can be arranged. We look forward to meeting with you and working together to grow competent and confident children for our future.
