My DD (eldest) is starting next year. I'm so excited she's finally at school! too bad it's still 3 years until DS starts!!!
You're all so organised! I was planning on buying her uniforms and shoes and bag in January.
She has had 3 transition sessions and I stayed for one, the others were with her kindy teachers. She has 4 more next term and the last of those 2 will be in her new classroom with her teacher and actual class so that will be great for her.
She is excited but I'm nervous she won't have the energy to go 5 days a week plus 2 days a week at OSHC.

Also another good idea I would definitely recommend doing and I'm glad one of the mums in our orientation organised it was she had a sheet of paper with name, phone number and sons name and said to all of us who were interested to put our names down and she would organise a class picnic the week before school started so the kids and parents could meet informally before school started - 17 out of the 19 of us did and she just texted us a date and time and bring your own picnic kind of thing and it was really a great idea as the boys got to play with each other and we all got to chat and find out about each other and for the couple of mums with older boys at the school they were great to ask questions about every day school info , it really made the first day so much nicer as the boys already sort of knew each other and same with the parents

What are transition days? I haven't heard of this before. We did get a transition to school statement from DSs childcare (they have a preschool program that he's in), but other than orientation days (only 2 x half days in November) there's no other mention of any special programs..
Interview went well! It turned out not to be so much an interview as a handing over of forms and confirming what days to book for OOSH care. He's now enrolled in Monday-Friday after school care for the whole year! So glad we got him in! I was so stressed about it.

Transition for us just means my son will go into the class for the day. So kind of easing him in. His preschool is at the school, in the next door classroom to the k-2 class, so will be easy for him.
We are lucky at my school. The kids just wear joggers, so no blisters to consider

Transition is the same as orientation.

I'll stay with DD for her sessions while she has her plaster cast. By the time that comes off I'm sure she will be totally fine with me leaving her there.

Wow, I had no idea there were so many starting school next year. I'm another first timer, I can't decide if I'm excited or nervous about her starting next year. I was slack getting the forms in but last week got the confirmation of her enrolment and orientation dates but not times yet. I haven't got her any uniform stuff yet and feel totally in denial that it is coming around quickly.
