Kindergarten Orientation

Kindergarten is a very important time for the child, parents and the school. At Chittaway Bay Public School our Kinder Orientation Program is all about the children being ready for school. Our program aims to reduce feelings of anxiety by familiarising the children with the school. During each visit your child will participate in fun activities in the kindergarten classrooms. We will also help prepare parents for this exciting time.

Kinder Orientation is a wonderful opportunity for the children to meet one another.

On the Transition Website, you will be able to visit our website that was created to support our new students become familiar with our school. There are videos from the Principal, a tour of our playground and story time with one of our Kindergarten teachers.
