Preparing Your Child For School

Be positive about school.  School is a fun, caring and sharing place.  All children are different and learn at different rates.  Respect your child’s individuality.  All teachers will accept your child at whatever stage of development s/he has reached and work from here.

Please ensure all clothing and personal belongings are well named. 

Pre School Visits

Please contact the Junior Room teacher to arrange specific times and days with you.  Your preschooler will then receive a letter in the mail addressed to them.  This will detail school visit dates.
