Ring-a-Rosie 3.5+ years old sessional Kindergarten
Friday 9:00am to 2:00pm
This programme is a gentle introduction to the rhythms and routines of kindergarten, away from the company of parents and siblings.
The Ring-a-Rosie programme is open to children who have turned 3 years of age by September 30th of the year before they attend.
After the enrolment interview all children will participate in a three-week orientation process at the beginning of the new Kindergarten year (early February).
This orientation process helps the children to settle into the programme, getting used to the teacher/staff and the indoor and outdoor environment. We will split the group of 20 children into four groups. Each group will have one orientation session of two hours in the first two weeks. This will help children to familiarise themselves with their new environment and it is not long enough to miss their parents!
In week three all four groups will come together as one for three hours.
In week four the full porgramme will be from 9am to 2pm.
If a child has not settled in after the orientation time, we will work with the parent/guardian to overcome the problem.
