Programmes - Getting Ready For School

The Getting Ready For School Programme is a home based programme designed to help (you) the parent/caregiver/whanau/family prepare your child for starting school. The programme is fun, educational and activity based.


To begin with your Family Support Worker/Whanau Awhina will work with you and your child to get you started using the 'worksheets' and activities. During each home visit activities and guidelines for your use will be left with you so you can continue to use these with your child.

As the front page of the parent's workbook says: we know that your encouragement and praise helps to develop your child's self esteem and sense of pride in their achievements, and that by you having and showing a positive attitude towards learning you will really help your child to 'Get Ready for School'
