Top Start for Pre-Schoolers

At Pakuranga Heights School we offer a pre-school programme for helping children to transition into the primary school setting. We are now taking enrolments for 4.5 year old children who wish to join this new programme.  The Top Start programme runs on a Wednesday afternoon from 1.50pm – 3pm, during term time for 8 weeks.  The cost of the programme is $80, which must be paid in advance (or $10 per session).  Top Start is taken by the junior team leader Mrs Margaret Walker and a learning assistant.  The class size is limited to a maximum of 15 students.  Each term there will be a theme that will be integrated to cover the following:

Literacy and Numeracy

* Alphabet – recognition of letters and sounds

* Counting, shapes, proportions (math concepts) 

Social Skills

* Development of routines

* Co-operative play

* Responding to expectations 

Please phone the school office on 576-9209 to check out spaces for the term before your child is due to start school. Print out an enrolment form and visit the school office to enrol in person.  

Please note your child does not have to be enrolled to start at our school to attend this programme, however, children intending to start at PHS will be given first priority.
