Partnering with our Pre-Prep Providers


At Gumdale State School we are excited about the partnerships we are building with our local Pre-Prep providers. We have an Early Years Transition Officer who liaises with a number of centres in the local and surrounding areas. The school has built close relationships with Eastside Early Learning Centre, Butterfly Childcare Gumdale, Kindy Kapers Wakerley and C&K Gumdale. 

The development of this Early Years network has enabled our Prep teachers to meet with and share information with educators in these Pre-Prep settings. During the year educators from these centres have taken part in sessions about readiness for school, literacy learning and the importance of age appropriate pedagogy. Children from Pre-Prep programs have visited our school and taken part in Reading in the Resource Centre, Dance lessons as well as morning tea in the Prep playground. In 2019 we will continue to build these relationships to ensure children attending Pre-Prep programs in our local centres are prepared for the transition to Prep.
