Frequently Asked Questions
We actively encourage all new families to participate in our orientation program prior to their first day. Orientation supports and aids families to transition smoothly into the service and discover more about the centre. It provides an opportunity for families to meet the educators and to discuss a multitude of questions that you may have. It is also designed to be relaxed and flexible giving the child and family an opportunity to observe and participate in the new environment.
