Join the Inner West Virtual CoP
Are you in the Inner West, Burwood, Canada Bay, Strathfield or Canterbury-Bankstown local government areas (LGAs)? Do you want to help create positive transition-to-school experiences for pre-schoolers?
Then you're invited to get involved in the Inner West Virtual Community of Practice (IWVCoP).
It's one of the many initiatives undertaken by ECED targeting five LGAs to share knowledge and foster support among professionals to enhance positive transitions to school for young children.
Interested professionals from early childhood services, primary schools and health and community services from the nominated LGAs are encouraged to join the IWVCoP and share information with like-minded colleagues.
Early childhood educators and teachers play a key role in driving discussions with families, encouraging them to share information about areas where a child may require additional support to learn and engage in a school community.
Recent research shows that children who have a positive start to their schooling are likely to engage well and experience ongoing academic and social success.
The pilot project is designed to support children from families who may be disadvantaged socially, economically and/or educationally, and is available until the end of April.
Further information can be found online.
