MCHS & Children’s Cancer Centre Prep Transition Program
This month the Monash Children’s Hospital School Children’s Cancer Centre teachers conducted a pilot ‘Prep Transition Program’ to help support oncology students and families as they enter their first year of primary school.
Three sessions were held, with an opportunity for the children to practice their social skills together and further prepare for Prep.
While the students were busy in the classroom, parent information sessions were held by the following professionals:
Speech Therapy and Occupational Therapy
Monash Children’s Hospital School
The program was a success, with relevant and informative content being shared, as well as easing anxieties and concerns that parents may have. It was also a wonderful opportunity for teachers to establish the relationships with the children, families and schools before the prep school year begins.
