We have had a wonderful time welcoming everyone back to Preschool for a brand new year. We hope you all made the most of the beautiful summer weather and are as keen as we are to begin autumn with all of the fun activities that involves.
The autumn weather here in the Blue Mountains can be a welcome relief from the summer heat, but often what begins as a sunny, warm day can rapidly turns to a chilly one, so we ask that children be dressed in layers to accommodate this.
For those of you whose children are just beginning Preschool this year, it is a great honour to be chosen as the ones who you have turned over care and nurturing of your child each day. We do not take this lightly and welcome frequent dialogue with parents about your child’s strengths, weaknesses, likes and dislikes and anything that affects your child. We hope that you will come and chat to us about what happens in the room each day and share you thoughts on your child, the more we know about your child the more effectively we can meet their needs at Preschool.
The year will be filled with discovery and fun to enhance your child’s growth and development. We will be holding parent/teacher interviews throughout the term, so speak with your classroom Educators to organise a time that would be convenient for you to meet if you wish.
We would also like to draw attention to the fact that Preschool is a nut-free and sesame-free zone as we have a number of children with allergies. Please ensure that your child's lunchbox does not contain nuts or sesame products such as humus or bread with seeds.
Our hours are 8.30am-4pm Monday to Friday and you are welcome to drop off and collect your child at any time during this time period. We can offer an early morning drop-off at 8.15am should this be required at an additional cost of $5. If you wish to book early morning drop off, please let the office know to ensure enough staff are present to accomodate this. Entry to preschool prior to our normal opening time of 8.30am is through the office door.
