Educators at this service acknowledge the importance of a smooth transition to school and that they play a key role in ensuring children are well equipped to embark on the next stage of their learning. Evidence suggests that children who have a positive start to school are likely to engage well and to achieve academic and social success. Our educational program and school preparation experiences promote opportunities for encouraging the skills and attributes needed for starting school and to assist children in becoming confident learners.

We believe preparation for school commences from a child’s first day of attendance at this service and continues through to the year prior to attending school where children will be grouped in an environment which fosters learning and development.
