Marvellous Monday - Transition to School Programme

Children on our pre-school list are invited to come along to school on Mondays from 2 -3 pm, leading up to their school start date. Usually your child will have the opportunity to attend for 6-8 sessions.


Your child will spend time in our new entrant area Nga Tipu (which means Seedlings). The Marvellous Monday group shares some school experiences, learns some routines and meets Mrs Bloxham (teacher) and Mrs Ross (teacher aide). This time also establishes links between the children who will start school at a similar time.


Parents and caregivers need to remain on the school property while children attend Marvellous Monday. After the first session we invite you to have a cup of tea or coffee in the staffroom, so that your child gains the independence needed to transition to full school days.


If Monday afternoons do not suit your family please arrange other visit times directly with Miranda Bloxham.
