Best Start Kindergarten assessments

Wednesday 30 January 2019
9.00am - 2.00pm

All children start school with different abilities in literacy and numeracy. At the beginning of Kindergarten, it is important that teachers can get to know their students and find out about their abilities and knowledge.

Best Start Kindergarten is an assessment held in all public schools and some Catholic and independent schools in the first few weeks of Kindergarten. Teachers sit with a student one-on-one and administer tasks that will help them gain an understanding of that student’s literacy and numeracy knowledge. The results help our teachers to understand what each student knows already and to plan teaching accordingly.

Assessments take approximately 40 minutes. For further information or appointment times, please phone our office on 4274 1740 during school hours.
