Setting Your Child up for Success in Kindergarten for 2021  Starting full-time school is a big step for many children. One of the ways we work with families to build school readiness and to support children transition well is to offer our 2021 kindergarten families this workshop. This will cover some aspects of learning in kindergarten and how families can support their children. We will also provide some tips on ways that families can support their child in developing independence, promoting physical activity and wellbeing, and to develop social and emotional skills, language, communication and thinking. This workshop will be held on Thursday 26 November 2020. We will run two sessions, one in the morning at 9:00-10:00am and then repeated in the evening at 5:30-6:30pm. Please RSVP on  https://forms.gle/DaG72FX9HSk3BLeF8. Bookings are essential.
