PublishingPageContent
Prep is a full-time program that runs five days per week, from 9.00am to 3.00pm each day. Further information about Prep is availble on the Education Queensland website.

Parents intending to enrol their child in Prep can contact the school and request an enrolment form. Baringa State Primary School has adopted an Enrolment Management Plan which means that children may not be able to enrol unless they live in the designated catchment area. 

Prep transition statements

As the school year concludes kindergartens will progress Transition statements to schools to assist in the preparation for the successful transition to Prep of children and their families.

Parents sign and consent to the Kindergarten teacher passing on the Transition statement to a school on their behalf and also for the school to contact the Kindy for a discussion.

What is a transition statement?

Towards the end of a kindergarten year a Transition statement is developed by Kindergartens in consultation with families.

The Transition statement provides a snapshot of each child’s learning and development and includes valuable information to:

  • identify each child’s strengths and interests; and
  • ensure each child is appropriately supported for a positive start to school.

Who develops transition statements?

Kindergarten teachers in State Government approved and funded kindergarten programs are required to develop and provide Transition statements to families. 
Kindergartens and long day care services will email kindergarten Transition statements directly to schools in November and December.

As the first piece of student level data provided to you, the Transition statements are a key resource to be used for planning for successful transitions for individual children and their families.

The transition statement parent/carer consent form allows kindergartens to pass on a child’s statement directly to the school.

Please ensure that your kindergarten provides a transition statement.
