Here at NBCS we make the transition to school positive and supportive.
Preparing for your child’s first Day
At NBCS we travel alongside families as they make these important decisions and we are on hand to answer any questions they may have.
This process begins with an informal interview in May/June of the year before your child starts school. Parents and children are invited to meet with an NBCS staff member during which time your child will be asked to complete a number of activities. Parents are asked a series of questions to enable the NBCS staff member to better understand your child and assess their readiness for school. Parents are also given the opportunity to voice any queries or concerns they have around the transition to school at this time.
Children who are offered a Kindergarten place are invited to return to NBCS in November for two Orientation mornings where the Kindergarten teacher begins building a relationship with them and facilitates friendships amongst the students. Year 6 buddies play a special role on these days and help the new Kindergarten students to sing, create and play.
Parents are invited to hear more about the Kindergarten program during this time, with a specific focus on what to expect in the early weeks. Once again, there is the opportunity for questions to be fielded by NBCS staff so that by the time the school year begins the following February, new families are feeling confident and connected to the NBCS community.
