Transition to School

Starting formal schooling can be daunting for young children. This program makes it easier.

It starts at childcare

To make going to school less stressful for young children, Council runs a Transition to School program at many of its Long Day Care, Preschools, and Family Day Care centres.

These centres also offer a Preparation for School Skills service, which is based on each child’s development abilities. Transition to Schools supports Preparation for School Skills.

To help prepare your child for school, download a Transition to School Booklet (PDF, 1.7MB).
