During first term 2016 three children from the Plunkett Street Playgroup successfully transitioned into the Plunkett Street Preschool.
Vacancies at the preschool created this opportunity.
Having supported the children and their families at playgroup, both the school and Lou's Place staff felt the three children would benefit significantly from the structure and educational activities offered by the preschool.
We are confident their regular playgroup attendance at the preschool site and the trusting relationship that developed between the children and Kelly, the preschool teacher, during playgroup contributed to their smooth transition.
Their parents felt confident leaving them at preschool, having witnessed their positive interaction with Kelly.
