STUDENT CLOTHING REQUIREMENTS
Preschool children are required to wear the PCS sports polo shirt and the school hat. Where possible, pants/shorts should be in school colours (cardinal red or navy blue) and children need to wear closed-in, jogger-style shoes. Parents have the option to dress their child in the full PCS Sports Uniform, but this is NOT compulsory until they commence Prep School the following year. Prep children are required to wear the complete PCS Sports Uniform and jogger-style shoes in line with our School Uniform Policy and Procedures.
Food is not provided at PCS. We request that parents pack healthy, nutritious food in clearly labelled containers or paper bags, in a lunchbox with an ice pack. A fridge is available should you pack food that requires refrigeration. A water bottle should also be provided each day.
It is expected that your child will be toilet-trained prior to commencing at PCS. We recognise that Preschool-aged children are often at different stages in their development when it comes to toileting, so please speak with one of our teachers if you need advice in this area. Remember to always pack a change of clothing, as occasional accidents are common at this age, particularly when starting in a new environment.
DROP OFF AND PICK-UP
For your child’s safety, the Early Learning Centre gates are operated using an intercom security system. Please notify staff of your arrival by pressing the ‘PCS Early Learning Centre’ button to the left of the gate. A staff member will then buzz you in. Only ‘authorised’ persons who are listed on your child’s enrolment forms are able to collect your child from Early Learning Centre. Parking is available in front of the Early Learning Centre building for Preschool and Prep School parents. The gate down to the car park is locked between 7.45 am and 2.40 pm so please use the top car park, accessible via the first driveway, if you arrive between these times.
It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to provide an up-to-date Medical Action Plan (where required) that has been signed by a health professional if a child has a known medical condition such as asthma, diabetes or anaphylaxis. Immunisation Certificates are to be provided as a condition of enrolment, as required by law in NSW.
