Our centre is committed to:

  •    Supporting parents in meeting the needs of their children
  •    Developing the specialist expertise of our staff so that they can meet children’s needs directly

How are we working with parents and the community?

Parents are recognised and valued as partners with the school in their children’s education and our school positively encourages their active involvement in their child’s learning. We provide home training for parents and carers, as well as ‘drop in’ sessions, which are intended to support and equip parents for their role.

Our centre also places a lot of emphasis on life and social skills and, consequently, the children are encouraged to engage in Best Buddies socialization program and visit the wider community (e.g. local markets, parks, museums) to participate in a range of activities.
