Transition — Early Childhood to School

Transition — Early childhood to School

This guidance outlines how schools can access and use the Transition Learning and Development Statement (TLDS) and work with families, children and other professionals to support a smooth and positive transition between early childhood and school. 

The Online TLDS, accessed via the Insight assessment platform, makes it easier for early childhood teachers to complete and share the TLDS with schools to support effective transitions. 

Information for early childhood professionals on transition between early childhood and school is available at: Moving to primary school (transitions).
