Once we have finalized this process, we will organize with you an Orientation Day for your child. This is a one hour booked in time for our families and children to come and play, in order to help your child find belonging in their new learning environment.
On a typical orientation, we will arrange a time of 10am-11am for you and your child to come for a play and discuss your child’s individual routine and needs.
After providing the Director with your completed enrolment pack, the Director, will introduce you to the Room Leader and Assistant Educator of the specified classroom, and allow them to explain information about the room. They will explain what to bring, where to sign in and out each day, where to place your child’s belongings, what they will be experiencing throughout the day, sleep routines, eating routines, and toileting routines, as well as where to find all parent recorded information. Our educators will encourage your child to join in the classroom activities and experiences while letting you step back and watch how they settle in.
During this time, you are free to ask the Educators any questions, or relay to them any information you feel is necessary for them to know about your child.
During this time, the Educator will overlook your child’s ‘All About Me’ form or ‘Nursery Routine’ form, and discuss anything that they deem necessary to know.
At the end of the orientation, your Director will meet with you again to look over all necessary paperwork, and finalize your child’s booking, and depending on how your child has settled in, we are able to organise a second orientation.
