The Parent Interview is unique to Steiner Education. It’s an opportunity for you and your teacher to talk and get to know each other, and to build a comprehensive picture of your child and their development.
You’ll also look in detail at the admission of your child, agreeing a start date and individual settling in process, an experience that is different for each child. Your teacher will be able to suggest things to make this process easier if it is an area of concern for you.
For families joining Kindergarten the interview will cover pregnancy, birth and your first years with your child, and may discuss, among other things, sleeping patterns, siblings, dietary requirements, allergies, preferences and any specific information about your family you would like to share. For families joining the Classes the interview will cover some of this, as well as your child’s educational development, interests, socialisation etc.
The conversation will be as detailed or as simple as you like. Your teacher will also talk with you about how the School runs, how information is shared between School and home, and how you can get involved.
