Settling Your Child
To ensure a smooth transition, we dedicate one primary care giver to your child for at least the first 2 weeks if under 2 1/2 years old, and 1 week if over 2 1/2 years old. This arrangement allows a special bond and trust to be created between the child and the teacher. We also have a buddy system where an older child will be ‘Teamed up’ and encouraged to be the ‘Guide’. This will help your child to develop a sense of belonging and form friendships with peers.
Before your child starts at the Lighthouse, we encourage you to come for 2 or more visits. We will also ask you to fill in a detailed information sheet about your child’s interests, likes, dislikes etc. This information will be distributed to all teachers before the first day.
