Transition to School Program at St Nick’s Raymond Terrace

Children enrolled in the preschool program at St Nicholas Early Education take part in our Transition to School Program.

Our Transition to School Program makes the transition from preschool into a primary school environment an enjoyable part of each child’s learning journey by familiarising preschoolers with the sites, sounds and routines of “big-kid school”.

Working with our preschoolers, the educators at St Nicholas Early Ecducation:

  • encourage children to take part in group activities where they learn to communicate and use their words

  • give children the opportunity to develop relationships amongst their peer group

  • support children in participating and cooperating rather than competing

  • work with children to develop prosocial behaviours such as taking turns, listening to others and being patient

  • offering children opportunities to be responsible for their own belongings
