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. Children from Pre-Prep programs have visited our school and taken part in Under 8's Day Activities, Music lessons, our Perceptual Motor Program and Play-based activities in a Prep classroom. Through such experiences, we will continue to ensure our incoming Preps and their families have the very Best Start at Gumdale State School.
