Connect Child and family Services
Start Date: 20/09/2013
End Date: 20/12/2013
The Nepean Area Transition to School (NATTS) project facilitates a positive start to school for children living in the Blue Mountains, Penrith and Hawkesbury local government areas.
The project assists children and their families to have a positive start to school by offering supported playgroups which are facilitated by an early childhood teacher and run in a primary school during terms 3 and 4.
Children and their families have the opportunity to experience the school environment gradually before starting Kindergarten.
Children are able to explore the school buildings, meet the classroom teachers, listen to stories in the library, play in the school playground and purchase food from the canteen while attending the playgroup.
Relationships between families, children, prior to school service staff and school staff are nurtured within the supportive environment of the playgroup.
Children starting school the following year attend the supported playgroup with a parent and younger siblings are also welcome, with quality early childhood experiences provided for children from birth to five years. Children not accessing other prior to school services have priority of attendance.
