The transition to school remains especially difficult again this year because of Covid conditions. Attached are some transitions resources that have been developed for parents.
This year the NCCA have also developed an additional parents template for children starting in ECCE. You can print them off to help support children with the transition to starting school.
The Mó Scéal templates linked below have been developed for parents to fill in to share information for their child’s new pre-school or primary school.
