The final decision to admit a child is taken only after a parent interview with a Director. The start date depends on the Directors’ assessments of the child’s readiness. Children must be fully toilet trained (a NSW Department of Education requirement) and capable of separating from their parents.

Start dates are staggered so as to assist the children in adjusting to their new environment, as well as minimising disruption to the rest of the class.

The start of something wonderful. . .
