English for Parents and Children
School is pleased to be able to offer a Mother and Child Package. This is for those parents who would like to come and study some English with us while their child studies at a local Primary
school, pre-school or in our school.

We have a number of pre-schools who would welcome the children, and also a Primary School who would be happy to have the children with them. Students attending a New Zealand Primary School need a student visa. We could teach them in our school if the parents would prefer. No student visa is required for this.

*Please note: The Mother must study in our school for the entire time their child is here. If the child chooses to study at a Primary School, they will need to get a student visa. This needs to be applied for in the child's home country before coming to New Zealand. The mother may also need to get a guardian visa.

High School Preparation is for a student who is planning to go to a New Zealand High School
for the first time. Please ask us for details.
