Discoverers - Transition to school Group:

At LIFE Childcare we have an Enrichment Room attached to our preschool room for our fantastic Transition to School Programme, designated especially for our children before they go to school.  This group is called the “Discoverers”.

Our transition to school programme aims to prepare children emotionally, socially, cognitively, physically and spiritually for school.  The aim is to enrich our children’s knowledge, challenge their thinking, empowering their capabilities for their next learning journey to school.  We provide a ‘Discovery Time’ where the children focus on short and long term projects, self-help skills, as well as literacy and numeracy skills.  We provide a stimulating and challenging environment for our children to make discoveries, learn and explore!

Programmes we offer are:

  • Jolly Phonics sound and work programme
  • Casey Caterpillar handwriting program
  • Lunch box days
  • Discovery Book
  • Home reading books

Parent / teacher catch ups

We ensure a smooth and safe transition to school for our children by providing information packs which include information about school including support for parents / whanau with their child’s pre-school visits.  Our aim is to empower our children with a love of learning to ensure a safe transition from the centre to school.
