Our Transition To School programme, which is in line with the NZ Curriculum, identifies five key competencies for school readiness. The development of these competencies are also being met in many ways for all children throughout the day. However, the extension group is a special time for the 4 year old’s to further develop their skills in readiness for their transition to school. Lining up when your name is called to go into your own special classroom and experiencing a slightly more formal setting is all part of this journey. We receive very positive feedback from both parents and schools as to how well prepared the Footsteps children are when they start school.
