We want your child to feel happy and safe at the PreSchool. To make sure that this is the case, the staff will work with you to decide on how is best to help your child settle in. Upon registration we will provide you with an All About Me booklet for you to fill out with your child. Once completed we ask for you to return this to us so that your child’s key person will gain more insight in to how best to support your child. Our online Learning Journey also allows you and the key person to upload and communicate any big achievements or events in your child’s developmental journey.
An optional uniform consisting of red polo shirt and navy blue sweatshirts can be ordered from the PreSchool. This gives staff and children a sense of belonging and keeps other clothes from becoming dirty from “messy play” opportunities. Parents are encouraged to send children in clothes which are easy to manage independently and asked to provide spare clothes in their bag which will hang on your child’s named hook.
We are open 8am until 4pm, during which time your child will be able to engage in a variety of activities and social interaction opportunities which take place both indoors and outdoors. Some of these include, music, song, stories, dance/yoga, arts and crafts and visits within the local community. Throughout the day we offer a variety of healthy snack choices including breakfast, mid-morning and afternoon fruit snacks. We help to transition your child from PreSchool to primary school by providing adult-led activities, registrations and our school leavers program during the summer term.
