Kindergarten 2024 Transition Information

Our plan for transitioning your child

The Kindergarten team has prepared a thorough Kindergarten Orientation information package to share with you in preparation for your child starting school in 2024.

Kindergarten Transition Days

If your child attends preschool on this day, they will attend the transition day with their preschool teachers and group. If your child does not attend preschool on a Wednesday or if they do not attend one of our local preschools, they will need to be dropped off and picked up by a parent or family member on their allocated day. We ask that you use the gate nearest the hall where a teacher will meet you.

The transition days allow your child to visit a new environment with familiar adults and children and we believe that this will assist them in transitioning to school and having a successful start.

First Day of School

All Kindergarten students will attend a Best Start Assessment booking on either Tuesday 30th January, Wednesday 31st January or Thursday 1st February. A booking email will be sent at a later date. All Kindergarten students will begin school on Friday 2nd February, 2024 (9:30am-2pm). The students will be observed by the Kindergarten teachers during craft and play activities, similar to those we would have completed on the Kindergarten transition days. We will form the 2024 Kindergarten classes and parents will be informed of their child’s class and teacher on Friday 2nd February at a parent afternoon tea at 2pm. The official first day of school in their Kindergarten 2024 class will be Monday 5th February.

Is my child ready to start school?

Starting school is a big step in your child’s life and there are many different areas of development that your child should be proficient in before starting Kindergarten, including; social, language and cognitive skills, emotional maturity, physical health and coordination and independence.
