Who is my child's Key Worker?

When your child starts Pre-School they are assigned a Keyworker. You will be advised who your child's key worker is.

Each day your child attends the key worker will fill out your child’s individual play record. This is then put into their learning journal at the end of each week along with photos so you can see what your child has been doing each day.
Does my child need to be toilet trained before attending pre-school?
Your child does not need to be toilet trained to come to Pre-School. Your child’s Key Worker will do all nappy changes and help support you and your child during toilet training when your child is ready.
