For our Top Tots Parents
Being part of your child’s learning is a key aspect for your child’s development, confidence and your parent-child bond. You will become familiar with new terminology that is used in Australian schools, learn how your child interacts within a class room setting, help you understand the Australian Curriculum which will prepare you for the future once your child attends primary school.
The program gives you the opportunity to be there with your child to observe and witness their accomplishments week after week and be able to praise them along the way and assist them when they are having difficulties.
Being present at the classes will give you the understanding you need to work with your child at home during the week for their weekly homework. This is important as it reinforces the concepts learnt in class.
