ONE of the last and most important activities of the
busy kinder year is a visit to school for next year’s Prep
It is a time for these four-year-olds to meet their new
teacher and take a look around at where they will be
spending the next 12 months.
Last week saw a total of 76 new Preps spend a morn-
ing at Cowes Primary School – one more than last year.
For the majority of these youngsters it was a case of
walking from their kinder room at the Phillip Island
Early Learning Centre into what has become familiar
This visit was the last session in the Transition Pro-
The program is now well established and plays an
integral part in the links between the early learning cen-
tre and the primary school.
It is introduced in Term Three and consists of a series
of visits to and from each centre for a variety of activities.
Its purpose is to familiarise the young children with
the school routine and environment and to dispel any
uncertainties or anxiety that may accompany this big
step in life.
Last week’s final visit saw the children commence
school at 9am to spend the morning with their class-
room teacher and do all the fun things that happen
Along with meeting their big buddies for the first
time, these youngsters were busy making Christmas
decorations, listening to stories, playing outside and
enjoying a snack at playtime.
The excitement of this visit was shared by the Prep
teachers who were most impressed with their new
students’ readiness for school.
“ This program is running along very smoothly once
again, and we are all looking forward to the start of
the 2016 school year,” Prep teacher Kylie Carlson
