New Parents Meeting

Colegio-Privado-Internacional-Britanico-Ingles-Las_Palmas-Maspalomas-English-School-osorioDear New Nursery Parents: I firmly believe that the first years at school are very important, setting a solid foundation for your child's future.


We are delighted that you have chosen Canterbury School for your child and we are confident that they will thrive here.

Each member of staff is here to nurture, support and guide them each and every day and are committed to making your child's infant school experience productive, stimulating and fun!

We will be holding an introductory meeting for parents in the dining room at Milton House on Monday 17th June at 17:15 and invite all parents of children starting in Nursery to attend. This meeting is for PARENTS ONLY, no children. In the meeting we will explain the daily routine, how we work, the items your child will need to bring with them and offer suggestions and guidance in order that your child makes a strong start in September.

On Thursday 20th June we will have morning where your child, accompanied by a parent, may come to school to spend a short time playing in the Nursery to get a little familiarised with our school environment before they start in September. There will be two sessions of 45 minutes (9:15-10:00 and 10:30-11:15) and you will be allocated one of them, so that not everyone is here at the same time. We will tell you which session to come to in the parent's meeting.

We're here to work in partnership with you – we want the best for your child! Please come and speak to us directly if you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions. We are very much a family school. Starting school can sometimes be quite a daunting experience, and not just for the child but for you the parents as well. I can assure you that we endeavour to make the transition smooth; first and foremost we want your child to come to school happily. We are all here to help you and your child– our doors are always open, so please come and speak to the Nursery team or myself if you have any questions.

Looking forward to meeting you in June,

Pam Ainsworth
Infant Department Headteacher
