Kindergarten Transition Program

We aim to provide families with children starting kindergarten the opportunity to experience our school environment in a fun and exciting way.

Through play, our teachers will be focusing on the skills required to start Kindergarten as well as encouraging the children to explore by engaging in new activities that will build their confidence and risk taking as learners.

Why is Kindergarten transition important?

Transitions are about movement, change, continuity or discontinuity.  

Transitions are points of vulnerability and possibility. They can be stressful or calming, points for positive growths or for setbacks. If children are to feel secure, it is essential that transitions be given careful consideration in order for them to be positive. 

Transition to School is one of the most significant transition points in a person's life. Effective Transition to School can provide continuity for young children and assist them to develop resilience as they move from one learning environment to another.  

Transition to School may be a child's first experience of social interaction with others outside their immediate or extended family.  

Children's perceptions of themselves as learners, and as someone who belongs at school, are often formed early in their schooling. A Transition to School program will assist in achieving a positive start to school.
