Starting school for the first time is an important experience in the lives of children and their families.
The Wondering about school resources provide schools with an opportunity to connect with families and early education and care services, to support children with their transition to school.
The Children's investigations booklet encourages current Prep students to represent and communicate their thoughts, feeling and experiences of when they started school, to support kindergarten-aged children with their transition.
