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 staff members 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, staff 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 parents and together the staff and parents will discuss what options are available or make a referral to see a specialist such as a speech or occupational therapist.

Parents 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 have the best opportunity to succeed in life.
