Best Start Kindergarten assessment

The Best Start Kindergarten assessment is a tool to help teachers assess your child's skills as they enter school. Teachers will sit with your child when they start school to assess your child's literacy and numeracy skills. Teachers will use this information to develop an appropriate teaching program that caters for your child’s learning needs.  

Best start interviews will run from 8:30am-3:40pm from Thursday 28 January to Monday 1 February 2021. You will receive notification of your interview day and time mid December 2020. Please allow 35-40 minutes for your child’s Best Start interview.
