Continuity & Transition Project 2017/2018

Day #3

Starting school is a major event in the life of children and their families

This term we continue to explore how children can flourish as they experience the multiple challenges and opportunities brought about by their transition to school. In doing that we will be reflecting on the strong influence of the context and practices of the school community.

For this next day of our series of project days, we will explore the challenges and opportunities for children’s learning, growth and development in the processes of starting school by:

  • Ongoing reflection on our progress to date (please bring the ‘Transition to School Rubric’ with you);
  • Considering the concept of school readiness: what does that mean for children, families, the early learning environment and the school?
  • How we prepare a learning environment which welcomes and includes all children;
  • Michael Cimarosti and Fran Nicholls from St Francis de Sales; their story of continuity and transition. How children continue to flourish as they experience the multiple challenges and opportunities brought about by the transition to school, will be strongly influenced by the context and practices of the school community.
