Kindergarten Information

Kindergarten is an important year of schooling as children formally begin to develop their literacy and numeracy skills. Our whole school community will help your child adjust to school and help them to feel comfortable.

When to start school

Your child can start Kindergarten at the beginning of the school year if they turn five on or before 31 July in that year. By law, all children must be enrolled in school by their sixth birthday.

When to start your child at school is an individual decision. You may want to discuss this with us or with your child's preschool teacher, carer or doctor.

Transition to school

As part of your child's transition to school, we ask you to bring them along to our "Kindergarten Orientation Mornings" held during Term 4. During these mornings, they will be able to visit the various areas of the school while participating in a variety of activities.

For additional information please see the attached PDF documents.

Best Start Kindergarten Assessment

The best start assessment is a tool to help teachers assess your child's skills as they enter school, and to tailor teaching to their individual needs. Teachers will sit with your child when they start school to assess your child's literacy and numeracy skills so that they can develop an appropriate teaching program that caters for your child.

Preparing for Kindergarten

You can help your child prepare for Kindergarten and be organised for the first day. View the video below which details what a Kindergarten learns in a typical day.
