ADDITIONAL PARENT INFO:

Let your school principal know that you are choosing to enrol your Child into the CIA Wellbeing & Creativity Programme on Mondays.

MONDAY is the day we have chosen to put self-care at the forefront of each child’s week.

We support kids in learning how to rest, recharge, reflect and value themselves. We guide kids to explore their multi-faceted creative abilities through: our guest artist workshops, passion projects, games, group collaborations, nature experiences and unity initiatives.

Children are encouraged to learn a variety of mind-body and self-care practices and implement the daily routines that work best for them.

As a social enterprise there is no direct link with Ministry Of Education guidelines. The New Zealand Education Act section 25B Release from school states: The principal of a State school may if satisfied that a student will receive outside the school tuition acceptable to the principal, release the student from attendance at the school, for a period or periods agreed with a parent of that student, to receive the tuition.
Our programme will give children a tool box of skills in self-regulation, emotional literacy, confidence and calming techniques that will be complementary to their classroom learning.
There are other one day programmes running throughout New Zealand, mostly bush/ nature schools or “gifted and talented” programmes.
One day “schools” are gaining in popularity. But we are excited to say that we are the first to focus on specific self care and well being topics.
Your Child’s health and safety is our priority.
Feel free to talk to our team about our programmes policies and procedures.
