Preschool to Prep/Foundation

Our school has a strong transition program from Preschool to Prep, starting in July with a variety of activities.

Our teachers visit the Preschools to get to know the children.

We keep our Prep classes as small as possible.

All our Prep students have a senior student as a buddy.

Each child is individually assessed at the beginning of the year.

All students are placed on individual learning plans.

All Preps participate in weekly PMP (perceptual motor program) to assist with their coordination and learning.
