Early Years and the Transition to School

Thursday 20 April 2023

Please join us for this Early years in mind (EYIM) webinar on the transition to primary school and school readiness.  

Although the transition to primary education can be an exciting time for many it can also be anxiety provoking for the child and their family. In this session our speakers will bring the knowledge and expertise from their practice to explore what it means to be school ready during this key Early Years milestone. Sharing the experience of the child and their parents or carers will be at the centre of our discussions. As will the need for an inclusive approach to transition and the importance of play.
