Allenstown State School conducts a Transition Program for our school community. This is the Step into Prep program that is supported by Playgroup Queensland and runs across Terms 3 and 4.

Step into Prep

  • A term-based program using a playgroup format where parents stay, play and learn with their child.
  • Builds a child's social and emotional "skills' bank" as they transition to formal schooling through engaging in age and developmentally appropriate learning games and routines.
  • Creates opportunities to experience the school environment and to build relationships with teachers and administrative staff.

Families receive:

  • Complimentary membership of Playgroup Qld.
  • Free playgroup sessions for their child over Terms 3 and 4.
  • Access to a range of age and developmentally appropriate resources.
  • Prep Transition Program is organised at Allenstown State School and runs in Term 4. 

If your son or daughter is currently enrolled in an Approved Kindy Program (either at a stand-a-lone centre or Early Childcare Centre), then they are better suited to our Prep Transition Program.  

If your child doesn't attend any Early Learning Centre or maybe only 1 day a week, then Step into Prep, in Terms 3 and 4 is the program best designed for you.  It is however, completely your choice to opt in to one of these programs.
