Transition Program

Transition Program

The Sacred Heart Transition Program is offered to children entering Kindergarten the following year.

The Transition Program  co-ordinated and facilitated by a qualified teacher. Students will be supported to become independent in a multi-stage classroom through interaction with the K-2 cohort and the routine of  a day at school.

The program will run each {day to be decided} commencing Week 6, Term 1 and continues until Week 4, Term 4 (during school terms).

The Transition Program is very beneficial for children. They will;

  • Children become more familiar with staff, students and the school environment.
  • Children are gradually exposed to the different expectations of ‘big school’.
  • Staff are able to identify learning styles and individual needs of students prior to the commencement of Kindergarten allowing programs to be developed if required.
  • Children are paired with an older ‘buddy’ who provides friendship and support.
  • Enhances transition to school through consistent pre-curriculum delivery.
  • Transition particularly supports children who have not attended pre-school or have minimal time socialising with other children due to isolation.
  • Parents will be supported in preparing their children for formal learning

A parent information meeting is held at the beginning of the year.
