We understand that the move from pre-school to school is a significant one for the youngest members of our community. Antonio staff liaise with local pre-schools and child care centres to ensure a smooth transition for new students.
We run our Early Explorers Transition Program, offered over a 14 week period for your child at no cost.
Each Thursday morning your child will be welcomed into the school at 9.15am and greeted by our Reception teacher. Your child will then have the opportunity to get to know the staff, the school facilities and experience some of the routines and expectations of school life. These Thursday morning sessions will operate for 2 hours, finishing at 12.00pm.
This time will also give them the opportunity to make new friends, play in the school yard and undertake morning recess together. We see this as a vital first step in establishing important relationships and providing a smooth transition into the school community for you and your child.
Early Explorers will also be offered to other non-enrolled families at a cost of $5 per session. This gives an opportunity to these families to also get to know the school and staff as they make the important decision of which school their child will attend.
