Mat times are an important part of the kindergarten programme where we share stories and sing songs/waiata. This helps children to develop their concentration skills and learn to express themselves in a large group. You are welcome to sit on the mat to support your child.
Teachers sit with children to encourage healthy eating and conversation. The children have a shared morning tea of fruit. Please provide 3 pieces a week. Thank you!
This part of our day is where we encourage children to help put equipment away, wipe tables and generally tidy up. We appreciate any assistance from parents – please let us know if you would like to help.
Invitation to Parent Help
We need and value your support at kindergarten. If you would like to help or contribute your time at any stage, please tell a staff member and we will suggest ways in which you can be involved.
