Classroom Visits

We welcome you and your child to visit our school before starting their school year. These visits help your child to be familiar with their classroom teacher and their classmates. It also allows parents to establish a relationship with the teacher. We recommend 2 - 3 visits before your child starts their schooling.

What does my child need to know before starting school?

We are here to help your child learn academic and social skills. We do not expect your child to have learned their letters, numbers or to read before they start school. However, there are a few skills that can help your child get into the swing of things quickly and cheerfully.

  • To use the toilet and wash my hands by myself

  • Draw a picture/make marks on a page and say what I have drawn

  • Recognise my own name

  • Tell people my name

  • Open my lunchbox and any food containers or packets inside it

  • Dress and undress myself

  • Put on and take off my shoes (gumboots or velcro shoes are requested if your child cannot tie laces)

  • Sit and listen to a story for five minutes

  • Be able to tell an adult if I need help


The best preparation for school is playing and talking! Through playing your child learns what they are interested in and enjoy doing. Talking, singing songs and reading books is an amazing way to set your child up to enjoy reading. If you are concerned about whether your child is ready for school please feel free to come and chat to us, we are passionate about supporting children to have a positive experience in the early years of school.
