Preschool Manager

Dear parents and caregivers,

I hope you all enjoyed the term break!  I know our preschoolers definitely enjoyed a range of events and activities over the holiday period.  Our senior room enjoyed a lovely nature walk and looked very serious with their magnifying glass when searching for bugs and other treasures.  It was great to see our senior children visiting our gymnasium and having the opportunity to experience a range of fun sports games.

We are excited to welcome back our buddy reading programme, our year 5 students will visit our senior children every Friday at 11:45 am.  This programme has been very successful in the past and through stories and creative activities, Buddy Reading nurtures a lifelong love of books.  Children develop social and interpersonal skills, as well as the confidence to communicate their thoughts and ideas.

Mandarin classes have commenced this term for parents and teachers.  If you would like to join our monthly session please email Our nursery teachers introduce simple Mandarin words to children along with NZ sign language.

Our college students willl commence their voluntary hours in preschool this term in our senior and junior rooms.  This is a great opportunity that provides a model for buddy systems.  Our college students help and guide our younger children to learn.
