Narromine Public School is very excited to announce its 2019 Kindergarten students will now have access to a full year of their Kindergarten transition to school program.
Kindergarten students starting school in 2019 will be able to attend the program one day per week from 8.55-2.55pm from week two to week nine of each term in 2018.
Principal Denise King said the NPS transition program is a wonderful opportunity for future students to prepare for school, accessing a bridging curriculum and building on and adding to the connected learning of preschool.
“Our transition program has so many fantastic outcomes including establishing positive partnerships between children, parents and educators and facilitating each child’s development as capable, confident and involved learners,” she said.
Mrs King said parents become participants in the learning community of the school, which allows them to feel welcome and involved, as it is proven that positive parent involvement in a student’s school life improves learning outcomes and increases learning confidence for the child.
“Our staff have designed a learning outline that will consolidate and support the early learning framework, we will be encouraging our families to continue their preschool journey and participate in our transition as an interwoven approach to education.”
Throughout the NPS transition program the children will undertake activities that build a strong sense of identity and wellbeing, that support, develop and enhance literacy, numeracy and the sciences such as visiting the library to be immersed in books, discovering our ‘Count Me In’ activities, engaging in science based developmental play lessons; and much more.
The children will participate in learning that is holistic, dynamic and individual, encouraging cognitive, social and emotional growth.
The NPS office is taking enrolments for the 2018 program now. Follow up interviews will commence in term four.
