Our Little Learners programme is an extended transition programme for four year olds, designed to assist students transitioning from pre-school to school.

The programme is available to students who are enrolled to commence in Reception at Emmaus when they are five. These students have their own teacher and classroom. Parents can choose to be involved in the programme on either a Wednesday or Friday morning from 8:45-10:45 in term 3 and 8:45-11:30 in Term 4, when students stay on for recess play.

The programme has proven to be very successful for these young students through:

  • Helping students establish friendships
  • Providing practice with school routines
  • Familiarisation with school environment and people
  • Increasing the confidence and well-being of students
