At North Ingle Preschool we provide a safe and welcoming environment for all children to feel a sense of belonging and ownership. We model and encourage independence, creativity, respect, caring, integrity. We support children to become effective communicators and decision makers while developing a strong sense of self. We provide hands-on, play-based learning experiences to nurture each child in acquiring a love for learning.

Attendance


We consider it important that children attend at least 4 (and preferably all 5) sessions per week to gain the maximum benefit from their Preschool year. Our staffing and Government Grants depend on regular attendance. If your child is absent please phone to let the school or teacher know.


Enrolments


Early enrolment of children helps us in establishing our numbers and staffing in advance. We are also staffed on attendance.


Transition Program


As our preschool is school based and on-site with North Ingle School, we aim to support you and your child with a smooth transition to school. Once a week children take part in a Transition Play Based Program with the Junior Primary classes.
In term 4 before your child is due to start school, they will be given the opportunity to have transition visits to the school. Usually children have 3 visits towards the end of the term. Transition visits can also be arranged for children who will be attending primary schools other than North Ingle Primary School.


Pre-entry


North Ingle Preschool offers Pre-entry sessions during Term 4 before your child commence full time Pre School the following year. Pre-entry is arranged according to centre enrolments and numbers. Please contact the Preschool for further information.
