We decided to set up this blog so we could share with you the amazing learning journeys your children are exploring within the kindergarten environment. It also gives you the opportunity to look at this information in your own time and feedback to us and your children your thoughts....ideas....and comments. We are really excited that we can offer this aspect of communication for your child, you and us. We look forward to your comments and any questions you may have.
To our wider community and worldwide viewer's welcome. We would love you to make comments to share with our children your thoughts, ideas or just a hi how are you would be fantastic. We look forward to hearing from you.
The curriculum links below are for you to click on to access our information sites which have been built to give you knowledge about what we do and what is helpful for you and your child to know before heading to school. Please take time to look at these sites and if you have questions or suggestions leave a comment on the comments link at the bottom of the postings and we will answer them for you.
If you have any concerns about your child's speech, learning or development that you think your child may need extra assistance with you can call Group Special Education (GSE) for an assessment of your child.
It is best to get an assessment done prior to school as once your child is in the school system a waiting list exists which pre-schoolers don't have.
Detecting any challenges for your child early is important so that support can be put in place before they start school.
Please speak to teachers about your concerns so we can help you with your approach to GSE.
