Starting School Transition Resource Kit



‘The early years provision is led well….children are prepared well for the next stage of school and are ready to move confidently into Year 1.’ (OFSTED 2015)

Getting ready to go to school is part of a crucial transition stage for children. Childminders, nurseries and other Early Years Child Care Providers are judged on their ability to get this right. For children and their parents it is very important for their wellbeing and a good start through support and advice can create a pleasurable and enjoyable beginning.
