Transition Program

Nurturing the magic and wonder of early childhood


The NEGS Junior School Transition program aims to build a bridge between home and Kindergarten by gently introducing the formalities and structure of education while allowing the magic and wonder of early childhood to be nurtured.

Our students are immersed in a child-centred and creative educational program that addresses the unique needs of childhood learning in a family atmosphere.

We nurture confidence and promote independence by cherishing childhood and encouraging students to learn, laugh, sing, paint, read, write and grow together.

 

Our Transition class draws upon the expertise of specialist staff and outstanding facilities from the Junior and Senior Schools at NEGS including spacious grounds, library, indoor and outdoor sporting facilities, Sensory Gym, the school Chapel and the Equestrian Centre.

The program is led by Catherine McCann, national award recipient at the ASG National Excellence in Teaching Awards (ASG NEiTA) in 2018.

Catherine was among just nine other top educators from across Australia receiving the top awards, which recognise teachers that have made an impact at their school.

The Transition program follows the academic year of NEGS Junior School, commencing at 8.30 am each day and concluding at 3.20 pm.
