We aim to see every child in New Zealand start primary school set up with all the essentials they need

Turning 5, and starting school should be a special experience for every child, and we believe that starting our children off in the right way allows them to experience a sense of wellbeing (Mana Atua) which not only puts a smile on their face, but makes them much more likely to embrace learning.
