Kindergarten Transition


At Leeton Public School we are passionate about early education. Our students enter an environment which is warm and nurtures not only their academic progress but also their social, emotional and physical development. We understand the importance of these years in forming children's attitudes towards school and learning. Our K-2 staff members are experienced in the needs of early education and are committed to developing the whole child.

Leeton Public School has a long and proud tradition of quality teaching and learning in this community. We strive to build upon this tradition so that school continues to meet the needs of this and future generations of our community's children.

Kindergarten 2023

Leeton Public School offers a comprehensive transition program for children entering Kindergarten. Our Kindergarten Orientation ensures children and parents begin their school life with success.

Our transition practices will focus on orienting children and families to the school environment as experiences and routines remain an important priority for ensuring children have a strong and successful start to school in 2023. The current situation presents opportunities for us to reflect on the ways that we currently support our new families and students and how we can approach these opportunities during 2022 to;

●        build relationships with children and establish a sense of belonging

●        collaborate with families to ensure children are known, valued and cared for

●        connect with early childhood services to share information about children’s learning

Please complete the following forms and return to the office by Friday 19th August if you would like your child to participate:
