You will be contacted by the Team Leader of the room your child is joining, and together you will schedule your first visit. This initial visit is to introduce you and your child to the teaching team and to begin to familiarise your child with their new environment and routines. You will have the opportunity to ask questions, schedule the rest of your visits and to begin developing a trusting relationship with your child’s new teachers. Your child’s visit times will be scheduled at different times of the day to ensure they begin to become familiar with routines such as meal-times, sleep/rest times and toileting/nappy change times.
You, or another family member, must remain onsite with your child while they are visiting. Initially you will need to spend time in the room alongside them until they are comfortable with you stepping out for short periods of time. There is flexibility within the transition timeline to increase the number and/or frequency of visits if in consultation together if we feel this would be in the best interests of your child.
