Prepare your son for school with our School Readiness Programme


Getting ready for school is an important milestone in our little ones’ life and it requires a strong foundation to help children start this amazing journey of learning.

Our School Readiness Program is for our pre-schoolers in their final term before starting school to ensure that they are given the maximum opportunities to learn new skills, as well as refine existing abilities. All our learning is based on the Early Years Learning Framework of the New Zealand National Curriculum.

We focus on:

  • Independence skills, the social and emotional self (the child must be able to socialise and cooperate with their peers and adults and be able to identify and communicate their feelings)
  • Routines (these give children the emotional stability they need and are essential for good behaviour and attention span)
  • Teaching respect for themselves and others
  • Academic skills.

This is a free 8-week programme at Wellesley College every Wednesday from 9am – 12.30pm with a limit of 12 children per term.

Once registered for the programme, you will have a Learning and Development Meeting with your educator who will discuss with you your child’s readiness to start school and provide you with support to help them to develop their school readiness skills at home. We work in partnership with your family to assist you and your child with the transition and orientation process.
