Starting School: Preparing Your Child

Positive Transitioning

Positive Transitioning is implementing ways to best prepare individuals to navigate new beginnings. We do this by preparing them emotionally, practically and socially for their specific transition. 

Here we discuss Positive Transitioning as a holistic framework, for supporting students during their school transitions; starting school, starting secondary school and finishing school. 

Supporting the Starting School Transition 

The transition to school is a big adjustment for both the child and their families. We touch on ways parents can holistically support their child to navigate this transition using the positive transitioning framework. We also discuss the importance of both encouraging positive future expectations and having conversations to alleviate any worries or concerns of the child.
