- How we support children transferring to school
We work to ensure that each child is 'school ready' so they practice skills that are vital in school such as being independent going to the toilet, ability to get changed and put their own coat and shoes on as well as their confidence in asking adults for help if they need to.We have a going to school book that we enjoy reading.
