School Transitions

Starting School is an important milestone for every child and their parents. At Little Gems Foundation Unit transitions for children from the Foundation Unit to full-time School are smoothly managed due to close partnership working, including passing on detailed information about children’s progress. Parents are encouraged to visit the new Primary School to make their child familiar with the environment and meet their new teacher.  We also invite Reception teachers to come and meet the Key person to discuss the child’s development and meet the child and carry out observations of children in familiar surroundings.

In the time leading up to the children leaving the Nursery to start School the Key Persons will plan and provide a variety of activities to promote School readiness for example:

Our staffs understand that it is paramount to communicate with parents as much as possible and endeavour to ensure that as parent’s you feel re-assured at all times so that this experience is a seamless transition for both parents and children.
