Prep 2025 Transition Program

Starting school is a big step in a child’s life. We believe a seamless transition from pre-school to prep is important to establish a positive start to school life. For that reason, we have designed a transition program that is spread out across the year. It is a great way for our incoming preps to get to know the school, our teachers and to make new friends before starting their first day of school in 2025.


These hours are for your child and you to get to know our school and their future classmates.
