We have established collaborative relationships with local schools and and all our children are supported with transition to school. Those attending Wanaka Primary School are accompanied by a teacher initially for the Te Ara Hono Transition to School Programme for up to 10 weeks prior to starting school.

We achieved a Silver Enviroschools Award: empowering children and families to act in ways that nurture people and nature, now and in the future, to maintain the health and viability of our environment, society, culture and economy.

We run an Explorers Programme for selected 4 year olds weekly in the Wanaka Station Park. The programme compliments our philosophy and sits wonderfully under our Enviroschool umbrella, both of which strongly support the values of working alongside families to create a healthy, peaceful and sustainable community.
