Our Prep Transition Program is the beginning of your child's journey to school, where they will have many opportunities to learn about Lysterfield Primary and begin settling into our school environment.

The program allows parents and students to experience firsthand the routines that operate and the relationships that exist between teachers and students.

At Lysterfield Primary School, we run an extensive transition program aimed at ensuring your child’s pathway from kindergarten to school is a seamless experience. Children and parents are encouraged to participate to experience and explore the exciting and stimulating programs available. Our goal is to have students who feel happy, safe, excited and curious about school before the commencement of the school year.

To accomplish this we offer the opportunity for you and your child to become familiar with the school in a number of ways.

  • Story time Sessions: Children and parents are invited to attend our school and participate in the listening of a story and complete a craft activity based on the story.

  • A Taste of Prep Night: Children and parents are invited to experience our Prep Classrooms and our Specialist areas. They participate in a variety of activities.

  • Teddy Bear Maths Night: We invite Father, Mother and Baby Bears up to our school for a night of Maths fun

  • Transition: Our sessions run throughout November and December, where children have the opportunity to engage in a more formal classroom experience. Parent information sessions are held during this time.

  • Information Nights: An opportunity for our parents to discover more about our teaching and learning programs.

We look forward to welcoming you and your child into our school community.
