Ngā Pēpī Manu – transition to school for 4 year olds


Your child may attend a pre-school kindergarten, play centre, punanga, koanga, kohanga or childcare or you may look after them at home.  Which ever of these options your child is in it is important that we make the transition from there to school as easy as we can.

‘Research shows that the transition to the school process is the most important transition a child will ever make as it is their first significant transition in their life.  If it is not a positive experience children can be very apprehensive when experiencing other transitions.”

Our transition to school programme called Ngā Pēpī Manu and it is overseen by our Deputy Principal Rosie Garnett.
