Transition to Kindergarten

School can be an exciting place where anything is possible!

Starting school can be a very exciting time for your child and for you as parents. However, it is not uncommon for children and parents to be anxious about the process.  Our transition program focuses on helping you and your child feel comfortable in the school. By the time your child has completed transition he/she will feel very settled and happy to just walk into the classroom and get on with their learning.

The Transition Sessions for 2022 Kindergarten children will be held on:

  • Monday 11 October OR Friday 15 October
  • Monday 1 November OR Friday 5 November
  • Monday 22 November OR Friday 26 November

(Update 8/9/21) Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions in Sydney the Kindy transition sessions are being reviewed. More information will be sent out soon.

Bookings details for the Transition sessions will be sent closer to these dates.

‘LEAP @ Home’ is an online resource designed by teachers and introduced to help children with their own learning as they become school ready. It offers families continued engagement and opportunity to build connections with the school community as children prepare for Kindergarten.

“A calm and nurturing introduction process.”

“Lovely staff, welcome and caring faces. Enough sessions to get the children ready. A great support for parents.”

“Informative putting children and parents at ease involving current students to show new children the school”.
