If you are interested in enroling your soon to be 5 year old, we do run Kick Start classes. This is a fun way to introduce your child to school. Starting school is an important step in any child's and parent's life and at David Street School the more prepared we are the easier the transition to school will be. So to Kick-Start your child's education at David Street School we offer a beginning school class for children who will be turning 5 years old and attending our school. This class is run one afternoon by our New Entrants teacher and focuses on developing a child's readiness for school. A parent is required to attend these afternoon classes with their child. In addition, we offer formal class visits as part of our kickstart programme. These are offered to four-year-olds in the weeks prior to their 5th birthday. These classroom visits occur between 9.00am - 11.00am, or 1.30 and 3.00pm Monday - Thursday.
WHY ARE WE HAVING THIS CLASS?
To help make a smooth transition to school, enjoyable for everyone concerned.
To develop children’s readiness for school in literacy, numeracy, motor co-ordination and social skills.
To show parents how they can assist their child at home in preparation for entry to school.
For parents to meet one another.
For the children to meet with others that they will be going to school with.
