Prep for Prep

As an integral part of our Kindergarten Program, all our 4-year-old Kinder children benefit from our school readiness program ‘Prep for Prep’. Designed to prepare them for a successful transition to school, this program includes:

Welcome Group Time

Each morning the class will have a ‘Welcome Group Time,’ welcoming the children to the room and the learning experiences that are planned for the day.

Small Group Learning

Children enjoy opportunities for individual and small group learning, covering literacy, numeracy and other areas in line with individual children’s needs

Regular Updates

Stay connected with your child's progress. Our Kindergarten and Prep for Prep Teachers will post regular updates on our app about learning that has taken place in the program.


Encourage a love for reading as your child gets the opportunity to borrow books from our centre's library to share with family.

Show and Share

Embrace self-expression with our Show and Share sessions, where sharing is celebrated.

School Bag

In Term 4, children can choose to bring their school bag, enhancing their sense of readiness for the next chapter.

Lunch Boxes

Term 4 features a special lunch box program. Children are asked to bring an empty lunch box on certain days, and the chef will provide them with a packed lunch. This enables the children to practice a lunch routine similar to school.

School Excursions

Exciting school excursions to the local school enable children to explore a classroom and playground alongside their Kinder friends.
