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.

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

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