Enrolment

 

Enrolment Details:

When you arrive at The Barnyard you and your child will be welcomed to our centre by our lovely receptionist Lee-Anne, you will then be invited to have a guided tour of our learning environment. If you are interested in enrolling your child we will give you a waiting list form to complete. Once a position becomes available and a start date is decided, we will arrange a convenient time with you to come and spend some time with your child in their room prior to them starting with us. This is an important part of your child’s transition process as it enables your child to spend some time getting to know their new teachers in their new learning environment. These visits allow you the opportunity to share any information you wish about your child as well as allowing time for any questions you may have to be answered. During these visits you and your child will become familiar with important areas in the centre such as:

– Toilets/Bathroom
– Children’s bag cubbyholes
– Kai area
– Children’s portfolio book area
– Parent pockets
– Parent sign in sheets

We recommend that you do a few visits with your child prior to their start date to help make their transition process as smooth as possible. Upon enrolment, you will be given a parent information booklet introducing you to The Barnyard, this booklet provides you with all the information you will need to know about our opening hours, policies and procedures and any other helpful information. You will also be given a detailed information sheet to complete about your child. This helps your child’s teachers get to know your child and allows the teachers some insight into your child’s routines and current interests. We look forward to having your family join us at The Barnyard.
