Thank you for attending our Welcome to Kindergarten Orientation!Kindergarten Gradual Entry Information
Please see attached gradual entry letter for September 2022 (Click here). Gradual Entry allows children to connect with Kindergarten teachers, feel comfortable at school, make friends, and understand routines. If you believe your child requires a longer period to transition to a full day Kindergarten program, please discuss this with your child’s teacher so that school staff can collaboratively plan with you to ensure your child is successful.
In gradual entry, your child will either be in Group A or B. Information regarding Gradual entry schedule for your child will be made available closer to the start of school. Following gradual entry, Class Placement Slips will go home to parents on Friday, September 16. All Kindergarten students will begin full time instruction in their new classroom on Monday, September 19 (with unique exceptions determined by parent/teacher/school).
The Welcome to Marlborough Booklet has rich information and provides the September schedule which will help you make child care arrangements in advance. Your child’s specific schedule (Group Information A or B) will be provided in late August. This will let you know when and where to bring them for the first two weeks.
