The building works at Mitcham Preschool will be completed during the April school holidays. Therefore, we will be returning to our wonderful environment, the first week of term 2.
I would like to say a big thankyou to the Mitcham Primary School community for allowing us the opportunity to relocate our preschool onto the school site during this time. It has meant that many people made sacrifices for this to happen. Steph and the year 1 students gave up their classroom for us. Classes in the Tutt building were unable to use the art room and parking has proved challenging for families.
I have been really grateful to the leadership of Mitcham Primary School, as well as the staff and students of the school. They have always been so welcoming, inclusive and very supportive, throughout term 1. Nothing has ever been too much trouble. I have really enjoyed building an even stronger relationship with Mitcham Primary staff, observing how the school operates and seeing how students manage routines / their learning environment. We have enjoyed special activities such as time with Steph and Tara’s class. The preschool children have enjoyed exploring nature play and the “colourful playground”. I have really loved seeing past children of Mitcham Preschool. Receptions through to year 7’s have stopped to chat to me, or wave across the yard. It has been very special.
It will be so wonderful to resume our learning program back at our preschool. It will take some adjustment by children, families, and staff, but it will be wonderful running a preschool program from a dedicated preschool environment. I am sure Steph and her students will really enjoy being back in their space too.
Thankyou again for your wonderful support. It has been genuinely appreciated.
Chris Catt, Director Mitcham Preschool
