Benefits of Prep school
Encouraging independence: By the time your 3-5 year old child moves to our Prep school room, he/she will be developing a whole new range of skills. Our aim for this age group is to encourage children’s independence and self-help skills as they prepare for the transition to school. Children in this room participate in regular visits to our local school where they enjoy library visits and discovery time.
Providing meaningful experiences: We recognise the importance of providing Prep school children with meaningful experiences, reflective of each child’s individual and collaborative strengths, abilities and interests. Our programme allows for both structure and free choice offering activities that develop early numeracy, language, literacy, social and physical development.
Interactive learning: Children’s individual leaning and development is documented online on our Storypark software programme. This forum provides parents with an interactive tool to be part of their child’s development and allows whanau to make regular contributions to their child’s learning.
Our Prep school facilities and programme have been designed to both challenge and stimulate. Visit us today. Our 4 year old's would love to show you around.
"Child’s Time was a second home for our family for over 4 years. My eldest started when he was 11 months old and his sister joined him two years later. Both my children loved their time at Child’s Time and thrived so much in the nurturing, caring and supportive environment.
The facilities are wonderful, constantly refreshed and changed up to keep the kids interested and the teaching staff are AMAZING.
We especially appreciated the Centre’s love and support during family losses and the challenging times of 2020!
Can’t recommend Jo and her team enough! " - William & Georgia's Mum
"Our daughter Ivyana started at Child’s Time when she was 4 months old back in 2018. She is now 5 years old (2023). One of the best decisions we have made when choosing a daycare.
Childs’s time has been a blessing to our family, and we are so glad we found it.
The whole entire staff was so sweet, and loving and ALWAYS greeted every child by name when they walk through the door.
Overall, we would recommend Child’s Time to anyone in need of a safe and reliable learning environment for kids!!
Our daughter’s last day was a tough day to deal with. We will miss everyone dearly." - Ivyana's mum
