    Many aspects of your child’s learning are recorded in their individual profile book
    which is a record of your child’s learning journey through the preschool years and shows you how the teachers have supported your child’s development and growth. The special book is for you and your family and we encourage you to add your voice to this book through stories, photos and special moments you want to record and share.
