Right Start

Dargaville Primary has:

A unique pre-school programme:

  • Children and parents feel part of the school before the child turns 5 years.
  • Reception room programmes that cater solely for the needs of New Entrants.
  • Small classrooms and a welcoming environment.

The Right Start Programme is run every Tuesday 11.45am – 12.45pm

The office will send out a letter to parents informing them of visits and when they will start.

Children and parents are required to come to the programme.

Children are given a follow-up activity to complete along with a gift. This in turn will encourage them to remember the new skills they have acquired.

All children enrolled are able to attend 6 pre-school lessons designed:

  • To help the parents understand what school life is all about.
  • For children to have fun.
  • To help the child begin school happy and contented.
  • To build a solid relationship with the teacher.
