Parents and Community
We believe that fostering collaborative partnerships with families is one of the foundations to ensure we achieve the best for every child.
All learning journals and information regarding your child’s day will be documented daily for you to view. This includes details of sleeping habits, toilet practices, your child’s response to the day and any health and safety issues that may have arisen.
Our educators will also speak with you informally upon collection of the child or through phone calls if any issues arise during the day.
At All 4 Kids KindergartenPTY LTD, we have a range of links with community and support agencies in our services to ensure that we support every child’s learning and development to ensure that they are prepared for the next stage.
Throughout the year we also offer parent/teacher interviews as a more formal time for a parent and a teacher to talk.
Just like every child is different, so is each parent/teacher interview. This will reflect that individuality. However, the following matters are often discussed:
All areas of development for the child – samples of work may be shown.
The parent’s and teacher’s expectations for the child.
How the teacher evaluates progress.
Joint development of a plan to help the child overcome any problems and to continue important accomplishments; and how parents and teachers can work together on a continuing basis to encourage the child to do well. We are also here to support you in your role as a parent, so if at any time you wish to learn more about our service and how you can be involved in your child’s education and care please feel free to speak with one of our friendly qualified educator’s.
