For children and their families, the transition to school is a significant milestone in a child's education.
By working together, parents/carers, kindergarten teachers and school staff help children experience a positive transition to school.
Kindergarten teachers use a range of strategies to plan for children’s successful transition to school, including:
- discussing with children their expectations of transitioning to school
- encouraging children to become familiar with their new school environment
- providing parents/carers with a transition statement
- collaborating and sharing information to provide continuity of learning across different settings.
