Transition to School

The year previous to your child attending Kindergarten, will be in a ‘school age group’ for language, cognitive and music activities on Wednesdays and Thursdays. These groups will be developing the children’s skills to prepare them for Kindergarten. During the morning session the children will spend time as a small group with our Early Childhood Teacher and work through the School readiness program. If you would like more information please speak to our Early Childhood Teacher.

The Early Childhood Teacher and other staff members (depending on numbers) take the children to orientation day/s for any children attending Tinonee Primary (parent permission required). Parents are welcome to come along or meet us at the school. This is a very exciting time for the children and we try and help out whichever way we can, may it be through talking to the children about the day, helping with transport to school for orientation days or other concerns you may have.
