Preschool & Transition to School Program

Childcare Henderson Preschool Program

Embedding aspects of school life in the kaupapa of our preschool room is an effective way to assist your child in their preparation for a smooth transition to kura. This also teaches your preschooler some of the necessary skills they will need to cope with this next step in their education journey. Various fun experiences are weaved into your child’s day, like listening for the bell, so they recognise this as a cue which marks different times and activities in the day— something they will need to know when they go to school.

Special features of our Preschool Room include:
