Today was a very special day for Tanveer.  Today was her graduation from St Andrews Preschool!

Tanveer and her family have been part of our centre community since Tanveer was four years old.   Now it is time for her to go to primary school.

At St Andrews Preschool we celebrate this milestone with a special graduation celebration.

We celebrate the child’s birthday and graduation together at mat time. Parents, grandparents and friends are most warmly welcomed to join us.

The teachers share some of the special things about the child and goes through the child’s portfolio, following their preschool journey.  We all look at the self-portrait on their very first day and notice how they have changed over their time at preschool.  They also compare their handprint now against the size of the one in their portfolio on their first day or preschool. 

Finally, the child is presented with their very own children’s bible which has a special messages written on the inside cover from each of the teachers.

Tanveer, we have loved getting to know you.
