Welcome Wednesdays - Our Transition to School Programme

Our transition to school programme was set up to ensure that children make a smooth entry into our school, and families, right from the start, know how they can help their children in their learning journey. Once children are enrolled, they are invited to come to “Welcome Wednesdays” for 10 weeks,  the term prior to their children starting school. If your child needs more, talk to our New Entrant teacher as we can accomodate individuals needing different transition periods.  

The focus is on the following:

Emotional readiness
Developing friendships
Class routines
Organisational and manipulative skills
Gross and fine motor skills
Early language and numeracy knowledge.
This programme is about fun and enjoyment whilst developing routines and readiness for school.

Parents may meet with the principal to identify their needs as a group and information sessions will run at the same time as the children are attending Welcome Wednesday sessions. This is an opportunity for parents to, not only meet other parents, but to become familiar with our teaching and learning programmes and to discuss any queries or concerns prior to children starting school.
