Support your child with self registration – coat, bag, and name card

Bring along a book and choose a seat in the classroom - this will be your child’s comfort zone when you leave

Always say goodbye - we will be on hand to distract and support your child


The first few weeks….

Find out – what the children already know and can do

Plan – opportunities to further their development in each area of learning

Observe and assess – continuous process
