The transition from kindergarten to primary school is a key focus for Fairlie children preparing to make the move.
Mackenzie Kindergarten and Fairlie Primary had been working closely together to ensure there was a continuum of learning, teacher Rachel Johnston said.
That process involved collaborating and sharing the important learning that happened at kindergarten with their next teacher, which was so important, she said.
‘‘The teacher can gain a deeper insight into the child and their family before they have even started school. This ensures the transition between kindergarten and school is a positive one,’’ Ms Johnston said.
