The school acknowledges the valuable role of each family and community member in the learning, development and wellbeing of children. We actively promote our vision for productive partnerships and collaboration on a range of educational initiatives. How parents become involved in the education of their children at Narrabundah Early Childhood School (NECS) will depend on what suits the individual family. We encourage family involvement at every opportunity.
It is essential that there is local decision making which is responsive to families and draws on community expertise. All parents are encouraged to maintain close contact with the Principal who is keen to receive feedback, questions or concerns at any time.
