Kinder to Foundation Transition Program at Banyan Fields Primary School


At Banyan Fields, we understand that a child’s first year at school is an important one.  Banyan Fields Foundation Teachers work closely with local kindergartens and childcare centres to create a positive start for your child and to ensure their learning journey is as smooth as possible.


Banyan Fields provides five Kinder to Foundation transition sessions as well as a morning with their Foundation class and Teacher.

The Transition Program


  • is designed to assist your child in becoming familiar with the Banyan Fields Primary School environment.


  • supports your child to build happy, positive relationships.

  • provides reassurance to the child (and the parent) that our learning environment is safe and friendly.

  • allows your child to make new friends.


  • enables you to meet the caring and dedicated teachers who will provide the quality education your child deserves.

School Guided Tours

Tours will begin in at the end of Term 1, for the 2024 school year. Contact the school office to book your School Guided Tour.
