Best Start Assessment

The Best Start Assessment is a tool to help teachers assess your child's skills as they enter school, and to tailor teaching to their individual needs.

Teachers will sit with your child before they start school to assess your child's literacy and numeracy skills so that they can develop an appropriate teaching program that caters for your child.

It is completed by all students in Government schools entering kindergarten.


At Wadalba you will be allocated a time before they begin school to bring your child in to complete the assessment. It is relaxed and friendly and a great chance for your child to get some one on one time with their teacher before they start school. You will not be in the room while the assessment is completed as this can often distract them.
