  • GETTING READY FOR SCHOOL

 

It can be a very apprehensive time for a parent or carer when their child is due to move into mainstream school. Due to the current pandemic, some children may or may not have the opportunity to return to their early years setting before the transition so this opportunity is being offered online.

We have planned for 6 sessions to give everyone the opportunity to attend. You may want to download the ZOOM app to attend but it will form part of your return email.
