Transition

Transition to Prep

Starting school is a major life transition for children and their families. It’s a time of change that can be both challenging and exciting, in which children and families adjust to new roles, identities and expectations, new interactions and new relationships. A successful start to school is linked to future positive school outcomes, both academically and socially. Our school endeavours to make this transition to primary school as enjoyable and trouble free as possible. 

Aims:
• To ensure that our young children receive the best possible start to their school life.
• To enable preschool aged children to become familiar with the school environment, teachers, routine and classrooms.
• To enable preschool aged children to develop confidence with their new learning environment.
• To enable our young children to participate in a variety of school activities.
