Supporting children's transition to school

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.

The links below provide information and resources to support children's transition to school.
