Is there a cut off date for enrolment?
No. You can enrol at any stage during a term, however we do suggest starting at the beginning of the term if possible to allow for consistency and routine.
What is the maximum number of students in one class?
- School Readiness classes: 8 children
- Pre-Kinder Classes: 6 children
This allows us to have a more personal interaction with your children. This ratio is much smaller than the 1:11 ratio in a kindergarten/daycare setting.
Does your program cater for my child with special needs?
This is a case by case situation. We do our best to assist all children, however we also need to consider the needs of all our students. If your child has special needs, please contact us so we can discuss the best way to support them.
What if my child has special health requirements?
We are both trained in first aid and have experience in using epi-pens and asthma inhalers. If your child has any specific health conditions, please discuss this with us prior to our classes so we are able to discuss a plan with you.
Do you offer free trials?
We suggest to parents to come along 15 mins prior to the session so we can have a chat, discuss what we do and show you our lovely space. This also gives you the opportunity to ask any questions you have. You will have the opportunity to see the other children arrive, and jump straight in and chat to the other parents.
You’re welcome to stay for the first 15-20 mins to join in and see how our sessions run.
Can I come to the class to?
As your child eases into our classes, we are happy for parents to stay for a short while at the beginning, however we are encouraging resilience and independence as an important pre-school skill and therefore this is better developed without parents in the class. If your child is upset or not coping with the class we would contact you and discuss a plan.
What do they need to bring with them?
We ask that your little monkey brings a small bag with a drink bottle, healthy snack and hat (for warmer months). Due to allergies, we ask that you avoid nuts and eggs.
School Readiness children will also be asked to bring their My Little Learning Book with them too (provided in their first session).
What if my child is not toilet trained?
This is fine. Please make sure you send them in a pull up nappy for the class and provide some spares in their backpack.
