Learning Brought to Life “Transition to school- creating positive pathways for success”

1 December, 2021 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm UTC+10

Research clearly illuminates that the transition to school profoundly impacts children’s ongoing well-being, learning, and development. It is imperative that we critically reflect on our approach to this critical event in children’s and family’s lives in our settings.

There will be a focus on:

  • How our beliefs about children and learning impact our decisions and practices
  • How connections create a bridge for success and stem from ongoing reciprocal, respectful relationships
  • The value in creating opportunities for children and families to be active participants in the process
  • Transition as a time of advocacy, not only for the child but also for the early childhood profession.

This webinar will provide valuable insights into effective approaches to transition alongside practical strategies that will enhance practice, impacting the experience for the child and family.
