Help children’s prepare for big school
While some children move to a new house in their early years and others welcome a sibling, starting school is a transition that’s shared by all children. It involves settling into a new routine, navigating a new environment and learning new things. While it’s a universal experience, each child will approach the transition in their own way.
Where one pre-schooler may be counting down the days till school starts, another might be feeling a little fretful, and another might not know what to think.
Fortunately, early childhood educators are adept at helping each and every child prepare for their transition from early learning to primary education. Here we look at some of the ways that educators support children and families to help make this move a positive experience for everyone.
