Preschool Field Officer
Preschool Field Officer’s offer assistance to children, their families and kindergarten staff to promote inclusion within the kindergarten setting. Observations and assessments are provided to assess a child’s level of development.
Outcomes from this can be referral for more specialized assessment, recommendation of a second year of kindergarten and planning within the kindergarten program. Preschool Field Officer’s visit kindergartens in Warrnambool City and Moyne Shire and Corangamite Shire.
Is my child ready for kinder?
Children who turn 4 years old on or before April 30 are eligible to attend a four year old kindergarten program. Each child develops at his/her own rate, and although your child’s age may make him/her eligible to start kindergarten, other factors may impact on his/her readiness for this experience.
If you are concerned about whether your child is ready for kindergarten, or need more information about when is the best time for your child to go to kindergarten, you can attend a free information session which will be run by the Council’s Pre-School Field Officers on Wednesday 12th June at 7.30pm. To enquire about the session and to register please contact City Assist on 5559 4800.
