Enrolments - Head Start

Head Start classes were introduced to Ettalong Public School in 1994, offering a program of enriching and preparatory activities for children to develop independence, communication and socialisation skills. The children get to know their new classmates, school surrounds and school routines, easing the transition from the unknown to the known. This successful program results in children feeling comfortable about starting school, developing a positive attitude and boosting their self-confidence.

Once your child has enrolled for next year's Kindergarten, they will be entitled to attend Head Start. The Head Start program will commence in Term 4. During the program the children will be engaging in activities to introduce them to our school environment and routines. While the children participate in these activities you are invited to attend a series of parent workshops and information sessions designed to inform you and to make you feel comfortable about your child’s transition to school. It is a very worthwhile and valuable program and we encourage you to attend as many sessions as possible.

We look forward to welcoming you and your family to our wonderful school community!
