Transitions are milestone events for children and have a definite effect on their development.  Transitions are times of exciting change and new opportunities for children; however they can also be times of uncertainty.  We believe that getting the transition process right is vital for every child and should include involvement from children, parents, practitioners and teachers.  We feel that for transition to be successful, the process should begin early and ensure that there is communication between the home, toddler groups and schools.
