Seamless transition to school

Our 5 step orientation program of school visits and in-class experiences, plus one on one Best Start assessment and parent debrief, ensure your child gets off to a flying start.  Half days for the first week and a half settle children in gently, with the Junior School Wellbeing Coordinator on hand to look after children and families during transition.  Parents receive a video record of their child’s precious early days in Kindergarten and can get involved through welcoming social events and our Parents as Partners program.

Our extensive Kindergarten Orientation program commences in October each year and provides your child with numerous opportunities to familiarise themselves with the Infants area and meet the Infants teachers prior to starting ‘big school’.

The children enjoy meeting their future classmates and the parents also have the opportunity to meet families starting Kindergarten at CCGS for the following year.
