AFTER a big period of getting to know all about "big school" a group of Yanco Public's youngest learners have earned themselves a break.
The school's kindergarten transition students were recently presented with their Little Learners graduation certificates and a small gift from their teachers Linda Milthorpe and Kara Kroek.
Each year the Little Learners program concludes in week five of term four and the school celebrates all of the achievements of the year with a family picnic.
The initiative helps students to become familiar with the school, as well as taking part in fun learning activities every week.
The idea then is for those who are eligible to start kindergarten will then do so at Yanco Public School the following year.
However, Little Learners isn't just aimed at that age group, with youngsters from ages three to five taking part in the engaging program throughout the year.
"The Little Learners program has encouraged all of the children to further develop their readiness for the kindergarten classroom," Yanco Public principal Tarnya Grigg said.
"Our kindergarten transition program students also participated in two full days of activities in the kindergarten/year one classroom.
Our teachers - Mrs Kroek and Linda Milthorpe - do a wonderful job each week planning and preparing engaging, educational activities for the children."
The Little Learners program will continue in 2020 commencing in week five of term one.
Leeton shire children in the three to five year-old age group are invited to attend the free program which runs from 9.30am to noon each Friday.
