Transitions from ECE to School

Mangere Bridge Kindergarten is continuing their amazing work in this area in spite of the funding for the Centres of Innovation work being stopped.

Their findings are now being published in a number of places. To find this work please go to their Blog ( Link is below and to the right.

They are also continuing to disseminate information through their popular information sessions. Details of these are also on their Blog.

Teachers from the Kindergarten spoke at several sessions on Transition in 2008 and 2009 at Kei Tua o te Pae PD Seminars in Auckland and their work was truly inspiring for both participants and the facilitation team. They share simple practical ideas as well as larger philosophical discussions.

It is great to know we can start acccesing their findings in the literature.

Thanks Mangere Bridge.
