Welcome to Peter Pan Preschool!
Peter Pan Preschool offer parents the opportunity to be involved
in their child's education.
Family involvement in early childhood settings benefits children
(Weiss et al., 2006) and multiplies children's opportunities for learning. Peter Pan was founded in the fall of 1958 and it
was the first of its kind in Hamilton and the surrounding area. Today it continues to provide a program that supports
children's opportunities to learn best through play, exploring the world and interacting with adults and peers. It has
a reputation for excellence!
Peter Pan is a place where parents and
children can go to school together.
We are a dedicated co-operative where all parents
are involved in some aspect of the school's operation. The parents operate the school in partnership with the Registered
Early Childhood Educators and Program Assistants.
Parents are given the option of taking a non-participating
or participating in the classroom. The New Child Care and Early Years Act 2015 requires anyone who works in the classroom
to complete their Standard First Aid with infant & child CPR, provide a valid Vulnerable Sector Check and provide
proof of a negative TB test.
Parents also participate on a committee that supports the operation
and maintenance of the school. The committment of time to committee work is very flexible and includes choices such
as making play-dough, library book duty, laundry, sanitizing, family events etc.
