Sessions to help with transition to school

Parents and carers can find out what to expect when their child starts kindergarten and how to help them prepare at free information nights in Batemans Bay, Moruya and Narooma next week.

The Eurobodalla Council Be Ready event will include talks from early childhood professionals to help pre-schoolers get ready now for their first steps into school life.

Mogo Public School assistant principal Catrina Niddrie will speak about the school system and what to expect, speech pathologist Claire Price will discuss the key indicators of speech delay and how to help children prepare for school, and Eurobodalla Council’s child development officer Jenny Hogg will talk about developmental stages of childhood.

Attendees on the night can also pick up a free transition to school kit, packed full of resources and fun activities for children to do now, before starting school, that help them learn as they play.

The Be Ready: transition to school information night will be held at the Batemans Bay Soldiers Club on Tuesday 3 May, 6-7pm, Club Narooma on Wednesday 4 May, 6-7pm and Moruya Golf Club on Thursday 5 May, 6-7pm.

Bookings are required through Eventbrite – just search ‘transition to school’ along with your preferred location – or phone Council’s children’s services team on 4474 7333.
