It is exciting to be starting pre-school and we are looking forward to meeting you and your child. The first days of Term 1 are set aside for teacher-family interviews where you will be able to meet your child’s teacher. 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 in the group more one-on-one contact with the staff (and vice versa), so that children can familiarise themselves with the environment and routines.

The schedule for which group will attend at which time is below.

We look forward to meeting you all and a great pre-school year. Please contact us if you have any questions.

Yours sincerely,

Andrea McCurdy – 4 Year Old Teacher, Banksia Group &
