It is exciting to be starting pre-school and we are looking forward to meeting you. The first days of Term 1 are set aside for brief meetings with families so that you can meet with Kim Costigan (the Director and Three Year Old Teacher) and the co-educators Jing Zhang (Willow Group) and Amelia Davies (Jacaranda Group). This is a good opportunity to share with us information about your child and for us to answer any queries you may have.

You will have signed up for an interview time at the AGM. If you do not yet have a time, please contact us.

For both groups, in the first days of the pre-school year, children will attend in a smaller group (Group A or Group B) for a reduced session. These staggered starts give each child more one-on-one contact with the staff (and vice versa), so that children can familiarise themselves with the environment and routines. Please make careful note of group days and times for the beginning of the term.

We look forward to meeting you all and a great pre-school year.

Yours sincerely,

Kim Costigan
Director and Three Year Old Teacher
