The Self-Regulated Teacher

Our personal journey towards self-regulation in Kindergarten

Welcome to Kindergarten

Welcome to Kindergarten

Every year Ridgeview hosts a Welcome to Kindergarten event for our incoming students. With the high enrolment numbers, we run two separate sessions. Parents and students are welcomed by the Kindergarten teachers, Principal and other staff members. A short presentation by the Principal follows.

The children are divided into four groups, and participate in a variety of centres:

  • Play dough
  • Cutting and Pasting (crowns)
  • Letters and Numbers (magnetic letters and numbers)
  • Drawing and Writing (drawing and printing
