STARTING KINDERGARTEN

Joey’s Juniors Kindergarten Transition Program

Transition from pre-school to school is a very important phase of early childhood development. St Joseph’s has a well established transition program for students entering into Kindergarten.

Our Joey’s Juniors Program commences in Term 3 of each year prior to children starting school. Students enrolled to attend the following year have the opportunity to join the program.

During Joey’s Juniors Sessions students will be supported by experienced and professional staff who will focus on:

  • Play-based learning experiences to encourage social interaction with peers;
  • Providing students with opportunities to focus on language development;
  • Nurturing each child’s confidence and readiness for school;
  • Learning experiences that enable each child to become more familiar with the people and places that form the St Joseph’s community.

The school works in collaboration with local Pre-schools and families to ensure a smooth transition to “Big School”.
