We have received our 2016 Kindergarten parent opinion survey from the Department of Education. Last year families enrolled in the funded kindergarten program were invited to fill in a survey regarding our program. It was very encouraging to read question 8 “Friendliness of kindergarten towards children, families and visitors” with 100% response that we are very friendly.
Our kindergarten and prep teachers have recently attended professional development regarding the transition to school. We also had the opportunity to network and meet with other local kindergarten teachers. We are now in the process of planning and preparing our next transition to school process for 2018. One of our local kindergartens is Littlecroft, we are planning three visits this term where the kindergarten class with their teachers and parent helpers will walk to the school for an excursion to find out all about school. Our Early Learning Centre will also be involved in similar visits to classrooms and finding out what happens in specialist classes.
