Joining Kindergarten

Open days are the best way to begin to get to know St Mary’s Kindergarten in the first instance, but if you would prefer an individual tour, our school Registrar will be delighted to arrange your visit and to answer your questions about the school and our admissions process.

Open Days


Familiarisation sessions

Before joining the Kindergarten it’s important that your child has visited with a parent or carer, to become familiar with the environment and the staff. These sessions help your child to feel settled in the Kindergarten and make for a smoother transition from home or nursery to Kindergarten. Parents are also welcome to discuss their child’s learning experiences with the Kindergarten team to make sure that, together, we are giving your child the best possible start in education.



To make sure that your child settles well at Kindergarten, we recommend that he or she joins us for two core days per week. This gives continuity and helps your child to become familiar with the staff and the learning environment.
