Starting School

Starting school is an exciting time and an important milestone in your child’s life.

We look forward to working with you and your child to make the transition from preschool to school a positive experience. The staff at Kumeroa School welcome you, your family and your five-year-old, and recognises the importance of a smooth transition into school. 

At Kumeroa School we have an open-door policy and see communication between home and school as an integral part of your child’s learning. 

We will create a plan that works with you to help settle your new entrant into our school. This can include, multiple school visits, visiting Early Childhood Education centres, and home visits. We aim to create a strong connection between home and school to make starting school as enjoyable and smooth as possible.

If you have any questions, please come and see us so we can discuss them.

Play Group

We have a playgroup that meets on Wednesdays, at the Kumeroa Community Hall, right next to our school. Janelle Ruri, one of our parents leads this wonderful group of parents with pre-schoolers, helping make connections and grow friendships before children are ready to start school. 

Please contact our school office for details if you would like to come along.
