Our School Readiness & Transition
At Konomi Kindergarten, we understand that starting school is a significant milestone in the life of any child and family. Our service supports continuity of learning and transitions for each child by sharing relevant information, clarifying responsibilities and by developing strategies that support a positive transition to formal schooling.
Strategies for Implementation:
Starting school is a major transition for young children. When children know what to expect they are much more likely to feel confident and happy about starting school. Educators will endeavour to create partnerships between Konomi Kindergarten and the local schools in our community to ensure an open exchange of information and understanding particular entry requirements. Many of the terms we use and routines are there to assist the Parents as well.
Our aim is to promote life- long learners and our programs will be adapted to the children’s abilities. Children will be provided with a variety of experiences in their daily programme that will help to make the transition to school a positive experience. Educators will provide written information about school readiness and will discuss and outline the long-term goals. (AGM)
