Transition to school

Starting school is an important milestone in a child's life.

Supporting children to successfully transition to school helps foster their enthusiasm for lifelong learning.


A child's transition to school experience starts well before, and extends far beyond, their first day.

Schools and early childhood services

By working together, early childhood services, schools, families and relevant community organisations can help children enjoy a positive start to school.
