Transition Program

Kinder-Prep Transition

At Keysborough Primary School we understand that a child's first year at school is an important one and the school works closely with local kindergartens and child care centres. It is a year when children are seen moving towards independence, developing self-esteem, making connections and building positive attitudes toward their schooling. The Prep Team provide a Transition Program that meets the needs of children starting school for the first time. This program includes visits to local kindergartens and a Prep for a Morning session at school on the last Friday of each month, commencing in May. Please contact the school for details.

The Transition activities provide an opportunity for children about to start school to become familiar with their new school and school staff.

Parent Information Evenings provide parents with valuable information about the school and how to help child be ready for starting school.

If you intend enrolling your Prep child at Keysborough Primary School we strongly encourage you to take advantage of our Transition Program for new Preps.

The Transition Program:

  • is designed to assist your child in becoming familiar with the Keysborough Primary School environment.
  • provides reassurance to the child (and the parent) that our learning environment is safe and friendly.
  • allows your child to make new friends.
  • enables you to meet the caring and dedicated teachers who will provide the quality education your child deserves.
  • gives you the opportunity to learn about the special programs we have developed to enable every child to succeed.
  • provides us with the opportunity to discuss your child's special needs.
