City of Greater Dandenong: Engaging families in transition to school

Session summary
‘Transition programs that support and celebrate diversity, and early childhood professionals who are culturally aware and competent, help to support a positive start to school for all children and families. Respecting diversity, helping to foster supportive relationships and encouraging a strong, positive sense of identity are all key practices that will help early childhood education and care (ECEC) services and schools facilitate a transition process that leads to success in educational outcomes’ (DET 2017).
