Interested in Early Learners classes being held at Churton Park?

Churton Park Community Centre

We have some families from the Northern Suburbs asking for the younger age classes.

We tried starting a new class last year in Johnsonville and had very little sign up interest from anyone, so will try again this year but at Churton Park Community Centre (hopefully!).

If there are sufficient numbers to start a class (7-8 children at least) and everyone is looking at staying for at least 2 terms, we’ll start a class up!

Please visit our registration of interest page for details and sign up if you are keen. Registrations will close midnight, Tuesday 24 April.

Polls from the recent email newsletter: try these ones!

The polls in our recent email newsletter didn’t quite work out (apologies!), so here it is again for those that wanted to complete it 🙂 Thanks for the input!

Short evaluation reports will be given to your child at their last class this term, so please watch out for those in school bags. We are also wondering what you think about reports?

Due to the increased student numbers, we are looking at possibly splitting up the classes into a 3 & under group (early session), and a 3-5 group (later session) if parents feel like the age ranges are too wide. This would affect the class times that you can attend. We think the age ranges seem to work well so far but what do you think?

Do you find people trialling classes disruptive for you and your children? Have you trialled a class before? We would appreciate feedback on how we can provide an opportunity for people to test the waters, yet be more settled and less distracting for current students, families and teachers. One idea is holding an open day in the school holidays to avoid affecting actual classes.

What do you think about trial students being able to attend term classes?

Do you think you would use a Ni Hao Children’s Community mobile phone app?
