    Transition to Kilkenny Primary School

    We provide a play-based transition and buddy program with our junior primary school classes. Your child can meet the school teachers and other children in a safe, supportive environment.

    Your child will join whole-school activities like book week, sports day, health hustle and assembly as part of their on‐going transition to school program.


    Children birth to 5 years and their parents or caregivers can join the Kilkenny Primary School playgroup. Playgroup is an important part of our whole-school partnership. You and your child can meet other new families in a welcoming environment.

    We are a proud Paint the Westside REaD partner. We host visits from Lizzie the literacy lizard to learn about reading, talking, singing, rhyming and playing. Your child will receive a Lizzie library bag when they start at our preschool.
