School Transition

Our teachers are more than happy to discuss your child’s readiness for school at any stage during the Kindergarten year. We are also able to access the PreSchool Field Officer from Manningham Council if further support or advice is required. 


During Term 3 & 4 parents are invited to meet with their teacher to discuss their child's portfolio and readiness for school.  

Our staff are closely connected with local primary schools and we experience visits from, or meetings with, Foundation teachers during Term 4 for those who are interested in or already registered with that particular school. An individual Transition Statement for your child will be prepared by the Teachers as part of preparing them for the transition from kinder to primary school.
