Kindergarten

Starting CCGS in the pivotal early years makes all the difference. You've been nurturing them from birth and you've always known what they're capable of. Now they'll find a second home with us in Kindergarten, one where they're known, understood and valued as individuals. A place where they can be safe and happy to learn and grow.

Transition to school

Starting school is a big milestone for children and their families. Five orientations make sure the transition is seamless - and parents can make friends too! An  individual session with their teacher just before they start helps understand where they are up to and plan their next step for a flying start at school. The Learning Support team offers extension and support to help every student achieve their personal best.
