Guideline for extending and enriching learning for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children in the Kindergarten Year

Transition statement

In Queensland, a transition statement is a summary of each child's learning across their kindergarten year. It includes contributions from the kindergarten teacher, parents and child.

A printed copy of the statement is made available to each child's family.

Families are encouraged to pass a copy of the transition statement on to the school upon entry into the child's Prep year.

Foundations for Success includes sample interactive transition statements.
