At Green Gables we strive for children to 'be the best they can be' and find that early assessment of basic skills such as speech and fine motor skills can help achieve this. By identifying areas needing special attention or simple refinement we feel can make this possible for each child so, as part of our service we arrange for relevant professionals to visit each year.

Please place completed permission forms in the communication box (silver box on the wall by the sign-in counter) by Tuesday 29th January.

The GG Team
At Green Gables, the majority of our families come from households where a language other than English is spoken at home either exclusively or as well as English.
A common area of concern expressed by a number of these families is whether or not their children will retain abilities in their parents native language.
This conference is designed for both parents and educators.
Let us know if you would like to attend with a Green Gables staff-member.
