Pohutukawa is where your child's school learning journey starts. Your child will be supported to settle into a new environment, make new friends, gain independence and build on their previous learning and skills. If your child has just turned five, they will enter one of our New Entrant rooms in Pōhutukawa Team. They usually stay in this room for the rest of that year.
The children make huge progress in many areas during their time in Year 0/1 including their independence, socially, academically, physically, in their ability to read, write, and to work with numbers. They are introduced to a whole range of new and challenging activities. We aim to develop each child in a holistic way, catering for their individual interests and different learning styles.
We encourage parents to become involved with their child’s learning – being a parent help in the classroom, helping on trips and outing, helping with supervision during swimming, as well as various fund raising activities. We look forward to getting to know you!
