North Shore Nursery School has enlisted a panel of experts - kindergarten teachers from local public and independent schools - to answer questions about preparing for kindergarten and to broaden your understanding of the kindergarten experience.
Bring a Friend - Public Welcome! Do you notice how quickly your child's play preferences change from month to month? Research shows the amount of playing a child does shapes the brain and can help your child refine social, academic and creative skills. Come and join us for an hour of discussion about different types of play and how to facilitate play throughout your child's day (and yours too!).
Learn techniques to help your baby, toddler or young child refine social, academic and creative skills.
