The transition to school remains especially difficult again this year because of Covid conditions.  Attached are some transitions resources that have been developed for parents.  This year the NCCA have also developed an additional parents template for children starting in ECCE.  You can print them off for children starting school to help them support the children with the transition.

Please contact us if you have any difficulties accessing the resources.
