Early intervention classes

A limited number of early intervention classes are located in NSW public schools and operate during school terms. At SPS children usually attend for 2.5 hour sessions, two to two days a week. Class sizes range from five to eight children and children are aged between three and six years.

Early intervention teachers works in partnership with parents and carers and other support agencies to plan personalised learning and support at preschool, based on individual interests and personal care, health, social and wellbeing needs.
