Children tend to transition well to school when: 

  • They have early signs of cognitive ability and maturity, and social and self-regulatory skills.

  • They have had access to high quality preschool and early education programs.

  • Their parents get along well with each other, are responsive and provide stimulating experiences.

  • Their school has a small student-staff ratio that contributes positively to children’s school readiness. 

  • They have good relationships with teachers and peers. 

It pays to do what we can to help children adjust to school. Starting off on the right foot has an impact on children’s success into the later years.
