Transitions are supported with the utmost respect for the child and their whanau. Before starting with us, families are encouraged to spend time with their child at kindergarten supporting them in becoming familiar with our environment and daily routines.
During these visits, children are joined by their primary caregiver who supports them in building a sense of trust and belonging. Consciously growing loving and respectful relationships is critical to building a child’s sense of belonging and supporting them in feeling valued and secure within our environment.
We continue to guide our children through their transition to school by preparing them for the social, emotional and physical changes of their day and environment and ensuring that this is a positive experience.
