  • Two weeks before the end of the current term if your child starts in the following term.

Communication between Parents & BERNIE

Once your child starts at BERNIE, a partnership with our parents is very important to us. We understand the need for parents to be kept up to-date with your child’s development, progress and care evaluation, therefore we will:

  • Have various forms of daily communications with parents, individually and as a group, which we will share with you upon your child starting. This will hopefully reassure you on how your child is settling into their new environment.
  • Be available to meet with parents both in the morning and afternoon to talk about any daily needs of your child.
  • Meet with the parents after a two-week period to discuss the progress your child has made and discuss how together we can help them in their next steps of developmental skills.
  • Give all parents an individual Planning schedule of all of the skills we will work on with your child throughout each half-tem and will be available to discuss these with you.
  • Write ‘formal’ reports for your child at the end of each Term. In Terms One and Two these reports will highlight the progress your child has made throughout the term and their next steps of development and care. At the end of Term Three, you will be given an End of Year Report highlighting your child’s progress in all aspects throughout the year.
