We are excited to have started our new Early Childhood transition to school space for tamariki aged between 3-5yrs at Te Kura Taumata O Panguru.
Waiata & ukulele, te reo, games, sounds, colours, art – painting, drawing, collage, 3D, chalk art and lots more, healthy kai, reading, exploring, walks, gardening… etc.
Our focus is on providing mokopuna with positive experiences in a school environment to prepare them for an easy transition into their first years their local school. By being supported in the shared school environment they will grow in confidence to interact successfuly with others that are older than themselves. They will learn how to do the basics like – hang their bag up, eat the right things for lunch at the right time so their kai lasts the day, feel confident to take themselves to the toilet, talk about their favourite things, hold a pencil/cut with scissors/use a glue stick/talk about their work etc etc…
This space operates on Mondays & Wednesdays from 9am – 12:00noon at no charge to parents.
We gather necessary health & safety information for each child that attends but do not ‘enroll’ them as we primarily encourage the support of other local Early Childhood Education providers such as Pa Arapeta Te Kohanga Reo which is situated beside Ngati Manawa Marae, Panguru.
Please contact the school office between 9am – 3pm on 094095701 or if you have a child you would like to start at Tupuria complete the contact form below:
