Are you considering or have you already enrolled your child in Kindergarten at SMGS in 2022?

Kindergarten marks the start of an exciting learning journey for many families. We know our youngest learners flourish in an environment where they are authentically known, and that nurtures and inspires their creative and curious minds.  

We hope you and your child will be able to join us at our Kindergarten events this year. These events aim to provide families with opportunities to tour our inspiring learning environment, get to know our exceptional teaching team and provide tools to help prepare your child (and you) for the exciting learning journey that awaits!

FOR LITTLE EXPLORERS 

Let’s Explore  

Let’s Explore is Snowy Mountains Grammar School’s award-winning Kindergarten Transition Program. The program won coveted Innovative School Awards in 2018 and 2020. 

The program has two components, a virtual and an on-campus experience. Our hybrid program is designed to guide your child in their first steps as they discover a whole new world of education. Let’s Explore gives our future learners the opportunity to experience the normal routines of a school day, build connections with their future Kindergarten teacher, become familiar with their future specialist teachers and feel comfortable with their future learning environment.

The program gives each child the tools to prepare for that very special first day of school and aims to leave them feeling more confident in their personal learning journey.
