School readiness — transition to primary school

Glen Eira Kindergarten Association (GEKA) will present this session for parents and guardians of young children.

Starting school can be an exciting and challenging time for you and your child. The transition to school starts well before the first day of school. Glen Eira Kindergarten Association (GEKA) will facilitate this presentation on the transition from preschool to primary school and discuss strategies, tools and indicators for parents to help prepare children for this change.

GEKA is a not-for-profit Early Years Manager that provides quality early childhood and care programs for children across 10 centres in the Glen Eira municipality. It is an organisation that prides itself on setting high standards for quality early years education with all GEKA Kindergartens rated at or above the National Quality Standard.

GEKA is committed to maximising outcomes for children’s early years and to encouraging opportunities for families to be involved in their child’s early education.
