We run a preschool transition programme called ‘Pikopiko’ which has been designed specifically for transitioning pre-enrolled children turning 5 into the school setting. Parents are invited to bring their child to attend this programme before starting school. There are usually 2 sessions held on Wednesday morning from 9.00 am until 10.00 am. On acceptance of your application, our Enrolment team will be in touch to arrange your preschool visits.
Our Foundation Class will be your child’s first class at Sherwood School. You and your child will visit this room during your Pikopiko visits. Our Foundation Class is specially designed to help transition your child into the school environment. A structured programme is run to help your child ease into school life, learn about school routines and become familiar with our playgrounds and buildings.
Once a term the school hosts a New Parents Morning Tea to ensure parents are well informed about the school and also to provide an opportunity to connect with each other.
