We work closely all year with our local school. We have 2 whole kindy (with kindy teachers) visits to the school in terms 1,2 and 3. Where the children become familiar with the school environment, staff and learning at school. In term 4 the children have 2 visits (without kindy teachers) with the identified teacher and room for the following year.
At our centre we offer the following services:
