Early Intervention 

There will be a phased opening for children who are commencing with us for the first time in Early Intervention 1 starting from Thursday 3rd September.  This will enable a parent to accompany their child for an hour on a specific morning in order to introduce their child to their new learning environment. This will help them to adjust and feel safe and secure with us in Early Intervention.  Ms. Ger Lewis will contact you with a time. 

All the other children will commence on Wednesday 2nd September 2020.
