Foundation Transition Program
During term 2 our Foundation teachers will visit the Koroit and District Kindergarten to get to know the children in their kindergarten environment. Our teachers will participate in kinder activities, read stories, sing and dance with your children to begin building a relationship.
During term 3 Koroit and District Kindergarten educators and 4 year kinder students will visit Koroit and District Primary School and participate in our extended curriculum program (specialist program) including – Kitchen/Garden, Performing Arts, Physical Education and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics). The children enjoy these interactive sessions and get to know a variety of different teachers and become more familiar with our school envrionment.
During term 4, children who are enrolled at Koroit and District Primary School participate in a 6 week transition program (one afternoon per week), then a half day session to support connections and familiarity with school life.
We will also engage Foundation parents in an ‘Introduction to school life’ interactive session on the final transition morning.
Foundation Entry Assessment
We will make individual times with each Foundation child. You will be required to bring your child in for a school entry assessment. This will give us information for the starting points for your child. The Foundation entry assessment is enjoyed by the students and they feel special having this one on one opportunity with their new teacher.
First Weeks of School and the First Day of School
Parents of Foundation students may bring their child to the Foundation classroom where the teacher will meet them. Foundation students will receive their start and finish school times for the first week of school during the Transition program.
