Parent Involvement

Our educators believe it is important for children to observe a positive reciprocal relationship between families and educators to help develop trust and a sense of security.  Therefore, our pre-school provides a wide variety of ways in which you can become involved according to what suits parents and families best.  You can become involved in the parents and friends committee, take part in fund raising, assist the pre-school in maintenance, participate in working bees, help out with excursions, cut or collect craft materials.

  • Parents are welcome into the pre-school at all times. You are free to visit or stay for a short stay at any time throughout the day,
  • Parents are encouraged to talk to educators in the mornings and the afternoon about your child’s day, and
  • Parents are welcome to call the pre-school at any time to talk or check how your child is settling in and participating in the learning activities.
  • Parents are encouraged and welcome to assist with excursions

“Learning outcomes are most likely to be achieved when early childhood educators work in partnership with families. Educators recognise that families are children’s first and most influential teachers. Partnerships are based on the foundations of understanding each other’s expectations and attitudes, and build on the strength of each other’s knowledge.”
