Transition to School

At St Brigid's we understand that transitioning to school is a big step for both children and their families. Our Early Years team endeavour to make this transition as smooth as possible for our little people, this involves:

  • A 6 visit transition period prior to your child commencing school
  • Early Years teaching staff visit children in their Pre-School/Childcare environment prior to your child starting school
  • We have a Playgroup that runs on a Tuesday and Wednesday from 9am - 11am each week. Playgroup is a great way for your child to become familiar with the school and to build relationships with other future students

When Can My Child Start School?
