Transition to Primary School

Reception Teacher Pre-school Visits

Prior to children commencing school, our Reception teachers visit your child at Preschool or Kindergarten to observe and meet them. This supports their transition at OLQP, as they see a familiar face on their first day!

New Reception children who are starting school in either Term 1 or Term 3 are invited to our transition program in the term prior to them beginning school. These sessions are held each Friday morning.

The Little Peacemakers Transition Program

Working in partnership with you, we give you a sense of safety and calmness and an environment in which your child belongs.

The 'Little Peacemakers' transition program is optional and is available for a small cost. (Children who do not participate in the program are invited and encouraged to join the program for the last three visits at no cost as a lead up to beginning school.)

Parents are invited to an information session the term before their child begins school.  This session will provide further information on supporting their child as they begin their school journey and meet other parents.

When dates and details for Transition Days are confirmed, we will post you a welcome pack with information and the dates.
