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

Yarraman 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. 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.

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