Starting School

Starting School

Starting school is an exciting and potentially nervous time for our young new students, and sometimes even for those dropping them off.

Our Kindergarten and Pre-primary classes are welcoming and safe learning spaces filled with experienced staff who are focused on not just your child’s academic development, but their wellbeing and development as a whole.

Children learn and develop before they start school from the many experiences and interactions they have, be it at home, outside, incidental or intended. They learn from you at home, from friends and family, in local playgroups, at Child and Parent Centres, and at child/family day care if they attend. They bring all of this learning with them to school when they start Kindergarten. Our teachers run a Kindy Readiness session in Term 4 of the year before they start Kindergarten.

Children learn best when they are supported by their families. The more you are involved in your child’s learning and the more you talk with the teacher, the better you can both support your child. A strong partnership with the school and regular contact with the teacher makes sure your child gets the best start to school.
