Children with special needs

Lalor Park Preschool offers an inclusive environment for all children and any child with additional needs may enrol. There are 3 Educators in each classroom to ensure each child receives the support they need to reach their full potential. We also have a wide range of other special needs resources available.

Throughout the year, Educators may identify a child who is experiencing difficulty in an area of their development, or be a gifted learner. These issues will always be discussed with the child’s family and together the teacher and family will discuss what options are available to best meet the child’s needs or make a referral to see a specialist such as a speech or occupational therapist.

Families who have any concerns about their child’s development are always welcome to contact the Preschool to discuss how we may be able to support you and your child. We want every child to develop a strong sense of belonging and have the best opportunity to succeed.
