What you are going to learn

The current national discourse around ensuring continuity of learning pathways implies the need for smooth and seamless transitions between school and ECE settings. However, ECE teachers often report challenges in developing sustainable relationships and systems that empower learners and families across this border with schools.

This workshop will highlight key research- informed principles and values-based approaches to creating mana enhancing and collaborative ways of working that support effective transition. Many of these approaches are also applicable to transitions into and through ECE services.
