The following elements and associated activities are important in shaping successful transition to school approaches:

  • Orientation — help children and parents become familiar with the school setting and administrative matters such as how to enrol, uniforms and stationery requirements
  • Transition — meet the individual needs of children and families, tending to be longer term depending on the child or parent's needs and include mutual information sharing between children, parents, Early Childhood Education Centre educators and teachers
  • Understand each child’s unique capabilities — recognise and build from each child' skills and capabilities to support continuity of learning and a sense of belonging
  • Capability building — strengthen the confidence and capability of families to support their children’s transition, adopt classroom and school practices that place children at the centre of transition to school decision-making and demonstrate the capacity to promote the wellbeing of all children
  • Parental engagement — promote parents' engagement and commitment to their child's learning such as reading to children and connecting with their child's teachers, as well as parental participation in school life such as attending parent evenings and events
  • Partnerships and relationships — designed to promote and facilitate networks and collaborations between stakeholders which service to influence and support positive transition to school experiences.
