ENROLMENT

Through research and our own experience, we know that children settle more easily when they are comfortable with their environment. We recommend that children attend at least three days a week. This will help them to develop a sense of belonging to the centre, to develop close relationships with teachers and close friendships with other children.

E-PORTFOLIOS

StoryPark is where you can view the observations and documentation recorded by the teachers about your child’s learning and development. E-portfolios provide us with more options of documenting learning than a standard paper portfolio. Parents can access loads of videos and photos of the children's activities. This allows us as teachers to share more of your child’s learning journey with you and to really capture some of the special moments that mere words cannot adequately describe.
