Kinder SMILE

Cabramatta Public School offers an exciting and comprehensive transition program to help you and your child transition into our school happily and successfully. The child-oriented component of this program commences in Term 4 of the year prior to your child’s start date.

During Term 4, prospective Kindergarten students are invited to participate in a series of two hour sessions designed to provide a taste of the diverse learning opportunities and environments available at our school. Prospective Kindergarten students spend time together in classrooms participating in a typical early Kindergarten learning program.  Meanwhile parents attend workshops.

The parent sessions provide an overview of our school, information on school readiness and how to begin preparing your child, emotionally and socially, for school. It is followed by a visit to Kindergarten classrooms to see quality teaching and learning in action.

Literacy and Numeracy workshops are also provided to give parents a realistic insight into the differentiated teaching and learning that goes on in the Kindergarten classroom, linking it directly to the new Australian Curriculum. Engaging, practical strategies to use at home, to assist your child with an easy transition into school, are also covered.

The Kindergarten SMILE program is a great opportunity for your child to become familiar with the school environment, the teachers and support staff. It is also an excellent time for you and your child to meet other students and their families.
