School transitions are when we help support and prepare the children to make the transition to start school.

This can include children being able to:

The development of school readiness skills allows school teachers to expand and further develop a childโ€™s skills in the areas of social interaction, play, language, emotional development, physical skills, literacy and fine motor skills. Without these basic skills already established, children can very quickly find themselves playing โ€˜catch upโ€™ compared to their peers that are advancing more quickly.

School Readiness is extremely important to us and we take lots of time to support the children in many ways.
One example is that we complete school transition booklets. The aims of the booklet are too:

โœ๏ธ Promote confidence and independence whilst learning about their new setting
โœ๏ธ Provide open conversations about the children's next adventures including talking about feelings and what to expect. 
โœ๏ธ The children are encouraged to develop their pencil control further by completing their booklets independently where they can
