Kindergarten Readiness and Additional Support with Transition Sessions

Dear Prospective 2023 Kindergarten Parents or Carers and Members of our Early Childcare Community,

Children are eligible to enrol in Kindergarten if they turn 5 on or before 31st July 2023. By law, all children must be in enrolled by their 6th birthday.

 

Is your child eligible to enrol in Kindergarten in 2023 or 2024, and are you trying to decide on when to start?

OR

Is your child starting Kindergarten in 2023 and needs additional support with his/her transition?

 

We are here to help! Rouse Hill Public School will be hosting an information evening, encompassing two sessions, that will endeavour to answer these questions.

Attendance is encouraged if you are pondering one or both of the questions above.

More information about our Term 4 Kindergarten Orientation sessions will be disseminated early next term. This will include an information evening for our incoming 2023 Kindergarten parents and cares to provide plenty of information to help you prepare for next year.

Don’t forget to download our School Enews app and subscribe to the ‘Pre Kindergarten’ section to keep up to date.

 

Readiness Session: Thursday 15th September at 6pm.

If you are deciding on whether to send your child to school in 2023 or 2024, we would highly recommend that you attend our readiness information session that will be held on Thursday 15th September at 6pm.

This session should equip you with the confidence to make an informed decision about whether to start your child in 2023 or 2024.

Students Needing Additional Support: Thursday 15th September at 6.40pm

Is your child starting Kindergarten in 2023 and are you concerned that he/she may be struggling to communicate effectively, has trouble maintaining focus for extended periods of time, finds it challenging to socialise or is diagnosed with a disability? If so, we would recommend you attend this session. This second of our evening session aims to guide you through a range of possible options to best support your child’s transition to school. Staff will be on hand to answer any questions you may have regarding your child's specific needs and suggest possible early interventions that may support your family in the lead up to starting school.
