Fun and games at Takitumu

Playtime at Takitumu pre-school is a noisy and joyous time for both the kids and staff.

Preschool teacher Piri Tauakume says lots of positive play is encouraged at the school as she believes this stimulates healthy minds. A recent study examining the relationship between sedentary behaviour and anxiety has found that prolonged sitting, such as watching TV, working on a computer or playing electronic games, is linked to increased risk of anxiety in adults and children.

At Takitumu pre-school the student enjoy quiet time to read and complete set tasks but generally learning through positive play in and out of the classroom is the norm for these healthy young minds.
