Nursery to primary school

Research shows that transitions are key to a young child’s development and emotional wellbeing. The way in which the first transitions are handled could have a significant impact on the child’s capacity to cope with change in the short and long term.  Transitions should be viewed as a process rather than a single event. Children, practitioners and parents should all be involved in the process.

A key transition that a child will experience is the move between nursery to primary school during their early years foundation stage (EYFS).
