Settling in procedures
At Mt Gravatt Community Kindergarten we encourage children to come along to our orientation morning, as this is designed to assist in settling your child into their new kindy group. This is offered in the week before kindy begins during the school holiday period.
Children will come to kindy, in two small groups, and stay and play for 1.5 hours without their parents. They will need to bring a bag, hat, water bottle and some food for a light snack.
Thursday 21st January: 8am to 9.30am or 10am to 11.30am
The whole group of 22 children starts kindy on Monday 25th January. Tuesday 26th is a public holiday for Australia Day, so children will attend only for one day the first week.
Friday 22nd January: 8am to 9.30am or 10am to 11.30am
The whole group of 22 children starts kindy on Wednesday 27th January
Each child is different and some will settle quickly into kindy, while others can take longer, but be assured staff will always offer support at this time for you and your child. By talking with staff, parents will be able to develop a procedure to help your child settle more easily and happily.
