Wellington Public School will be offering a seven week Preschool to Kindergarten Transition Program this year. The program will run on Wednesday 9 -11am from 24th October (Week 2 Term 4) until 5th December (Week 8 Term 4).
This program is designed to achieve a number of goals. These include:
•Preparing children for the commencement of primary school.
•Placing children in the structured learning environment of a Kindergarten classroom, allowingthe children to gain familiarity with their surrounds and feel more comfortable in a newclassroom.
•Build on experiences gained at preschool, day care or at home to ensure that fundamentalconcepts are familiar prior to the commencement of formal schooling in 2019.
•Give our teachers the opportunity to get to know our 2019 Kindergarten children.
We encourage all children who are attending Kindergarten in 2019 to take advantage of this experience.
Attached is an expression of interest and permission form for the Kindergarten 2018-2019 Transition Program.
Please fill it in and return to either your child’s preschool or Wellington Public School office. This expression of interest will form the basis of our planning for the transition program.
