Transition to school is not just about the first day of school; it is a process that happens over time. It begins when children and families start to think about and prepare for the commencement of school.
With this in mind, we have created the Nativity Stars Transition Program for children about to commence Reception at Nativity. Little Stars takes place on Fridays in terms 3 & 4 the year prior to starting Reception. The sessions are for half-day in terms 3 and 4.
The aim of Nativity Stars is to:
- Nurture each child’s self-worth by creating an atmosphere where children feel respected and loved
- Encourage children through play and set tasks to explore, invent, discover, question and experiment
- Work in partnership with parents to prepare and facilitate a positive start and transition to school for children and their families
