Bridging the Gap Between Preschool & Kindergarten

The program has been designed by me, Mary-Ellen Rooney. I’m a Primary School Teacher who saw the need to bridge the gap for a lot of children between preschool or day care and Kindergarten. I now do this full time.


Our Classes

Classes are capped at 4-6 children. The reason for this is to replicate a typical sized group of children in a Kindergarten classroom. I also do one-on-one private sessions if requested.


As the numbers are small, it becomes a beautiful way to transition into a larger group when they enter the classroom as I can equip them with the knowledge and skills they need in a non-threatening, safe and engaging environment.


The small numbers also allow me time to work one-on-one with the children so there are no surprises when they get to school and need to with with their teacher.


Classes run Monday to Friday from 9:30-11:30am and Saturdays from 9-11am and again from 2:30-4:30pm. The children can come to one or more sessions per week.

Enrol Now

The Saturday classes also include children from K-2 who may need a little extra help with their school readers or sight words. Many of these children are past kids I had in my previous years who just like to come back on the weekends.
