We are very excited to welcome our new children and their families! However, we understand that starting child care can be a stressful time for both our new children and their parents. Therefore, our aim is to make your transition into our Little Peoples Community as seamless and stress-free as possible. We love to have our families come and visit before their commencement of care, and we have an orientation newsletter which outlines what you can expect from our curriculum and programs in 2024: Orientation Information _2023_24
We’ve also compiled a few of our favourite resources below to help you prepare for this new exciting time!
