THE NEW & UNFAMILIAR CHANGES
Starting primary/elementary school can be a challenging time for both parents and child. The transition from a more play-oriented environment to a more formal one will demand a higher level of academic independence, physical development, self-regulation, and social-emotional maturity from a child.
Children will be expected to learn more and work harder as they adapt to the rigors of the new curriculum. The smaller teacher to student ratio will also mean less individual attention than previously. Children will be expected to follow rules and be more independent in handling self-care and regulating their behaviours. The larger physical environment will also make it harder for children to find their way around and further complicate the social environment for the child.
Why is the success of the transition important?
Children are greatly influenced by their school experiences and positive early school experiences will be pivotal to long term positive school outcomes. Children who struggle long-term with transitions are at risk of developing negative attitudes to school, becoming passive learners, and developing anxiety and insecurity in the new setting.

Quick Tips
Tips
Tips to ensure that your child feels assured, prepared and excited for the new school year:
  1. Be positive and confident as a parent. Children often take cues from their parents and then form their own expectations based on it. It is important to believe and show that you trust that your child will transition successfully.
  2. Owl Tips
  3. Talk about your child's school with them and familiarise them with the school environment. Discuss any concerns or questions they might have about the new school.
  4. Develop your child's social competence by creating opportunities for play and interaction with other children outside of school. Increased exposure will allow them to learn and practice the necessary social skills that will be important to making and keeping friends.
  5. Ask your child's kinder teacher if there are areas that you could work on to increase your child's school readiness. If you are concerned that your child will not be ready for this next stage, you may like to consult with a Psychologist to discuss further.
