A child's preschool year is a very important year in their development as it prepares them for transition to primary school. Primary schools are challenging places for young children. A school age child is expected to co-operate with others, share equipment, follow rules, take turns and be considerate of others. They must learn to take care of themselves and their belongings, and to keep themselves safe. At school, your child will be motivated to use new words, to express themselves with words, music and paint, and to listen to and comment on stories and ideas.
In the year before your child's primary school journey begins, our educators, in their daily interactions, will encourage your child to develop a passion for learning and support them to begin this exciting journey to “big school”.
