Find out how it all works
At your initial interview with the pre-school manager, we discuss your child’s experiences to date and establish the best settling process. We will provide information and guidance on the ‘settling time’, our primary caregivers and also the policy of favourite toys from home.
Give your child time to settle
On the first day at preschool, please allow time to settle your child and familiarise yourself with school procedures. The morning programme is structured to allow time for settling between 8:00 and 9:15.
The preschool manager will introduce you to your child’s primary caregiver, who will help settle your child each day. The caregiver provides a safe and secure introduction to the centre, communicates with you in the morning about your child’s wellbeing and supports your child through the separation period.
Bring a cuddly toy on the first day
Your child’s first day at preschool is exciting. Your child is welcome to bring a favourite cuddly toy for comfort during the settling process. However, we do not encourage toys from home in the long term.
