Our Transition to School Program involves understanding what and how children learn in early childhood settings and how it connects with school curriculum.

We promote high quality early learning and seamless transitions into school.

We understand what and how children learn in early childhood settings and how it connects with the school curriculum.

At Start Strong Early Learning Centres, we have incorporated technology which benefits the children through improved teaching and learning opportunities across the whole curriculum. The integration of this technology in our Kindy Room encourages active learning of Jolly Phonics, problem solving, shapes, colours, numbers, letters and various other topics.

As part of our service, we offer a range of activities that help children transition to school. Some of these activities include the Jolly Phonics program, which enables children to learn the 42 sounds of the English Language. This gives children the foundation for reading and writing. To further their literacy skills, we do a structured writing lesson which the children enjoy. These lessons focus on pre-writing skills and extend to copying sentences.

Once a month the children do cooking with our cook. They look at a recipe, help measure and mix up the ingredients to create something multicultural.

We offer a French Linguistic Program. For half an hour every week, they sing songs, count to 20, learn the colours, the days of the week and other various words and phrases.

The curriculum also offers “Program Achieve.” Interactive puppets are used for role-play scenarios which teach the children about getting along, confidence, organisation, persistence and resilience.

With our show and share program, the children are allocated a day of the week where they need to bring in something to share with the group. This is to promote confidence and positive self-esteem for the children. There is a weekly topic that the children follow which coincides with the theme for the month. Parents are encouraged to work with their child to help them draw, research or create something for the topic.
