Transition to School Webinar

CONTRIBUTORS

While the COVID-19 Pandemic has prevented us from presenting Transition to School information in person this year, we thought it was still vital for parents to have this information. That’s why we’ve put together this two-part webinar series.

In Part One, you’ll hear from our Pedagogical Thinker in Residence, Dr Michele Peden. She will discuss some of the educational outcomes children will have achieved during their time at an Early Learning and Care service.

Part One:

In Part two you’ll hear from Alyssa a Kindergarten student about her Transition to School. You’ll also hear from Kate who is the Director of our Corrimal Community Preschool, she’ll be discussing her experience as a parent. Finally, you’ll hear from Mel Bowden, who is a Deputy Principal and Educational Leader at Koonawarra Public School. She’ll be discussing an educator’s perspective.

Part Two:
