Leamington School

(07) 827 5747 Lamb Street, Cambridge 3432

Who is the class for?

For those children who will be turning 5 years old and their parents/caregivers (who must
attend with them initially).  Pre-school visits begin before your child turns 5.  Please contact the school office on 827 5747 or email pauline.b@leamington.school.nz to clarify when your child's pre-school visits will take place.

Why are we having this class?

  • To help make a smooth and enjoyable transition to school
  • To develop children’s readiness for school in literacy, numeracy, and social skills
  • To show parents how they can assist their child at home, in preparation for entry to school
  • To reinforce the partnership with home, "it takes a whole village to raise a child"

What is the class?

This class is in addition to the kindy, day care or pre-school that your child may already be attending.

What are we going to do?

  • Take part in early reading and maths ideas and activities
  • Give parents ideas on how they can help their children at home with oral language, reading, writing and maths
  • Provide an overview/introduction about different aspects of the school 
  • Provide an opportunity to get to know other parents and members of staff
  • Have lots of fun!

If you would like your child to be part of our Kickstart pre-school visit programme, or want to find out more, please make contact with the school office, or email pauline.b@leamington.school.nz
