Moving to an early years setting

The transition from home to an early year’s setting is a significant milestone for both children and families.

Whether your child’s early learning journey begins at an occasional care service, long day care centre, playgroup, kindergarten or school, the transition to education and care outside of home and family can be exciting, significant and sometimes overwhelming.

It’s important to acknowledge that transition into early learning may see parents, like children, also experiencing some apprehension during this time.

Partnerships between families and the early childhood educators/carers can help parents manage this period of change. An environment that is welcoming of parents and encourages them to collaborate with early childhood educators is an important part of these partnerships. With good information, preparation and support, all families can ensure the transition from home to an early childhood setting is a positive experience.
