Transition to School
Around 60,000 children start Kindergarten in Government schools each year. Many schools provide activities to assist children in making a smooth transition into Kindergarten.
This resource is a compilation of information designed to assist in planning for the transition into school of young children.
The materials comprise:
- research information on transition to school
- examples of current practice
- ideas for staff to review, plan and implement transition to school programs.
A good Transition to School process ensures children will start school ready to learn and schools will be ready for children. (Pianta 2004)
