Assessment 

Children are assessed twice during each term to ensure they are meeting developmental and learning milestones. The first assessment occurs at the beginning of each term to determine our Early Starters capabilities. A second assessment is given at the end of each term.

Our assessments are used to create an individualized report for each child that is shared with our families and discussed during parent-teacher conferences. Parent-teacher conferences are also used to check in with our families.

Progress assessments are also conducted every fortnight for each child. The results are used to provide individualized teaching and learning.
