Starting school is an extremely important step for both your child and you. Our goal at Grafton Public School is to ensure that your child feels happy, safe and stimulated from their very first day. To achieve this goal, we implement a successful transition program that also includes comprehensive information about the school and ways to prepare your child.



Successful transition from preschool into Kindergarten is a vital element of a child’s overall development.
