Last night I spoke at the Gardner Road Kindy AGM about transitioning children from kindys to schools. Gardner Road is a special place for me as it is where my 2 daughters went many years ago. Head Teacher Gaylene Brownlie is also part of the Auckland Central Schools leadership group with Alison and myself – responsible for promoting best practise transitioning children from early childhood providers to schools. Alison, Gaylene and myself are a passionate team with a special interest in making sure children have the best start to school they possibly can. It was such a pleasure talking to a group of local families who are coming up through the schooling system and about to undertake the adventures of school life.
