Readiness for school can be determined in many ways, from awareness of letters and numerals, to being resilient, independent or knowing the steps to take to find answers to questions.
At Natures Point Childcare, our programme focuses on a balance of preparing your child with a solid foundation not only academically, but also emotionally/socially and physically. Our Rūma Kahikatea (Tamariki over 3 years) will introduce programme inclusions such as lunch box days, which familiarize your child with some of the routines they will experience at school. Your child will also have a project book, and book bag which will include story book to take home once a week. This programme will run in between 12.30 to 1.30 daily and the daily updates will be posted on Educa.
Integrated within our everyday programme and children’s “Natures Point Individual Learning Plans”, we support the development of literacy, numeracy, scientific enquiry, and development of essential concepts and skills.
We aim to support the children to make their transition to school as smooth as possible – preparing children both socially, emotionally, and educationally for the next steps in their journey.
