Part of attending four year old kindergarten is getting ready for school the following year.

Yarraman Centre Kindergarten works closely with the local primary school Yarraman Oaks Primary School and starting in term 2 the children have the opportunity to attend the primary school several times as part of an excursions organised by the kindergarten.

Transition Program 2017

The children will be attending Yarraman Oaks Primary School for their transition to school experience. These excursions are very beneficial to familiarize the children with the primary school setting and their routines regardless if your child will or will not attend this primary school

Transition to primary school days start in term 2 and the dates will be anounced soon.:

Usually, the children will leave the kindergarten at 9:45 am and return to the kindergarten by 11:15 am. The children will take part in the prep lessons while at school. We will walk to and from the school. We need some extra adults to accompany us, so we request parents to volunteer to join us on these excursions.

In addition the department of education and training has some great information about starting school.
