Plan ahead for a successful transition to school and learn about how support works across the primary years

Starting school is a major milestone in every child's life.

There is a new physical environment to navigate, new routines and many new people to meet and new relationships to be formed. This makes starting school both an exciting and a challenging time.

Taking steps to ensure a positive transition to school for all children builds a strong foundation for school life.
