PALs – Social Skill Development Program

Music, movement & pretend play are used in mixed small group sessions across our preschools to help children socialise and prepare for kinder & school. The PALs Social Skills Program offers additional support to children with their transition from Preschool into local Primary Schools and the program is available to be used across all QDPA preschools as required.

At Harris Park Preschool we enlist the support of an Early Intervention Teacher from Schools as Community Centres (SaCC) and use the PALs program with small groups of children from across classrooms during terms 3 & 4 of each year – providing a strong focus on social skills that support children in their transition to school.
