The Pre Infant Programme is a fun introduction to Primary school and has been running in Ballyduff N.S. for a number of years. This initiative was rolled out to make the transition from home or playschool to primary school a pleasant experience. This year, due to Covid 19 restrictions, the Pre-Infant was reduced to one hour on one morning. In previous years, parent and child came to the school for an hour each week and do a fun activity ie. jigsaws, play dough, colouring and drawing, reading stories etc.
The Pre Infant Programme gives pupils the opportunity to experience the school environment and to meet school staff, thus making the first day at school less daunting.
The 2021 Pre-Infant Programme has been a huge success! Next years Junior Infants got to experience the school and meet some of the school staff. It was an excellent opportunity for both parents and children to get to know each other. We thoroughly look forward to welcoming our new Junior Infants and their parents in September!
