Transition to School

At Hopscotch Preschool we have an established transition to school process.

Our aim is for children to gain essential tools needed for a smooth transition into school which will also benefit them as life-long learners.

In discussion with parents and caregivers, children will have an individual plan tailored to their specific strengths and needs.  This plan will focus on developing their self-esteem, mutual respect, literacy and numeracy skills, independence, peer relationships, perseverance, confidence and ability to cope with the unexpected.

Most schools encourage new entrants to visit before they are formally enrolled.  It’s a great idea for children and for their families.  If you wish, we can arrange visits to any of the local schools.  We also have school booklets available at reception for you to take home.  We can provide support in choosing a school for your child.
