 Pre School Visits

New entrants are encouraged to visit their future classrooms on Wednesday mornings, for four sessions, prior to beginning school.  

The sessions are from 9:00 to 10:30 (Wednesday mornings) and a parent or caregiver is expected to accompany them. This is an opportunity to meet their teacher and the children in their class.  They are able to  join in with the activities and become familiar with class routines and expectations.

The visits support the children in making a happy, successful transition to the school.
