Extending that homely feel
Transitions can be a difficult time for many children and it is important to understand that every child is different and that some are more vulnerable than others. Creating a smooth transition into school is vital to ensuring that your child gets the best possible start in their new setting. Practitioners, parents, teachers, teaching assistants play an important part in supporting your child’s transition. As practitioners, it is our role to make the transition as easy as possible and hopefully an enjoyable experience for your child.
It is crucial to ensure that the school is aware of any individual needs that your child may have, so the teacher has knowledge of where your child is at developmentally in order to plan an appropriate curriculum and support for your child. Once the nursery has been told which school your child will be attending the nursery will invite the teacher into the setting to discuss your child. We will also give an opportunity to arrange a transition meeting where key worker, parents and teacher can meet and openly discuss your child’s needs.
