Our Kindergartens are open to children aged three and over whose parents feel they are ready to take the next step towards independence. Children aged 6 to 7 begin with Class 1. Admission is by written application followed by an initial interview with the appropriate teachers. At interview, the members of staff will speak with the parents to discuss the child’s readiness and individual needs and explain in more detail the education we offer. There will also be interviews with a member of the finance group and a parent representative.

We like to take a child history to enable us to become more familiar with your child. At a later date we like to visit the child at home. This helps to bridge the gap between Kindergarten/School and home.

All new children will have a 6 week “Settling–In” period. This is a trial period for both the child and the Kindergarten/Class groups.
