Event description

Description

Whitehorse Council will once again be running this very popular Parenting Information Forum because we know that the transition from Kindergarten/Preschool to Primary school is a significant one for children and their families.

There are often many considerations for parents to work through such as:

  • How do I know if they are ready for school?
  • Will they be bored if we wait another year?
  • How do we choose a Primary School?
  • What can we do to prepare our child for this major transition?

Louise Doratt will explore these questions and discuss the importance of the child’s social and emotional maturity as well as their academic ability. Practical strategies, including the importance of play will be discussed to prepare your child and family for a smooth and positive transition to school.

Louise has a long history of tertiary teaching including Swinburne, Victoria University and Deakin. She assisted in the establishment of the Westgarth Bush kinder and worked in the bush kinder setting for 2 years. Louise’s energetic workshops have taken her around Australia and you can be assured her presentation will be engaging and entertaining.

Cost: $2 gold coin donation payable on the night
