Kindergarten 2018 - Gradual Entry Schedule

To our lovely Kindergarten Parents,


We are looking forward to meeting our new students on September 4, 2018 at 9am in the gym.  We will be having approximately an hour long orientation to share our program and expectations for Kindergarten with you.  During this orientation you will be assigned a letter that will organise the next three days of mini sessions with the hope to have the children interact with as many different peer groups as possible.
Each mini session is with twenty Kindergarteners.  These sessions will not necessarily all be with the kindergarten teacher your child ends up having. These sessions are designed for us to get to know all of the students and for us to create class lists that will facilitate the most positive learning environment for your child.  Parents are strongly encouraged to allow their child to experience these mini sessions independently without their parent(s) present. Your child will attend one mini session every day. Your child will be assigned a time on Wednesday at the Tuesday orientation. You will be able to sign up for your own times Thursday and Friday.

The following is a list of times for the mini sessions:
Wednesday Sept 5 
First Session 8:20- 9:20   
Second Session 9:30 - 10:30  
Third Session 1:00-2:00 

Thursday Sept 6  
First Session 8:30 - 10:00
Second Session 11:00 - 12:30
Third Session 1:00 - 2:30

Friday Sept 7 
First Session 8:30 - 9:30
Second Session 9:45 - 10:45
Third Session 11:00 - 12:00

Friday afternoon we will make the class lists.  We will email you in regards to what class your child is in.  This email will include a link to a website to sign up for an interview time on either Monday Sept 10 or Tuesday Sept 11.  
Monday and Tuesday will be interviews.  Please bring your Kindergarten child with you to the interview.  It is highly requested that siblings do not attend the interview so that there is more focus on the kindergartener.  
Wednesday September 12 will be the first full day of Kindergarten with your child's whole class together with their kindergarten teacher!  

We are looking forward to a fantastic year!

Sincerely, 
The Kindergarten POD
