Transition to School
Starting school is a big milestone for children and their families, and high quality early education helps children be prepared.
It is well known that strong relationships and information sharing between families, early childhood services and schools helps support a child's successful transition to school.
The transition between learning environments can be both challenging and exciting, and there are many different programs and activities that families, early childhood services and schools can use to support the process.
When children know what to expect, they are much more likely to feel confident and happy about starting school and this is supported through transition to school programs.
The updated NSW Transition to School Statement helps school teachers get to know a child before they enter kindergarten.
