In preparation for your child’s transition into St Catherine’s ELC in 2021, our orientation program provides the children with an environment whereby they develop a sense of connectedness and belonging prior to commencing in 2021. It is undoubtedly, a unique and extraordinary period in our lifetime and we understand the worry and unease you must currently be experiencing. We recognise that we are all navigating a fluid environment and due to the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 situation we have transformed our Orientation program to ensure we continue to exercise an abundance of caution.

Storytime in the ELC

Reading and storytelling with your child promotes brain development and imagination, teaches your child about language and emotions, and strengthens your relationship. Our ELC educators are wonderful storytellers and we invite you to create some special time to share in the delight of story-time with your child, because anytime is a good time for a story!
