Professional learning to support transition to school

Writing and using Transition Learning and Development Statements (TLDS) to support effective transition to school

Knowing what information to include in a Transition Learning and Development Statement (TLDS) and how to write statements using a strength-based approach will support improved continuity of learning for all children transitioning into primary school.

This 90-minute workshop, facilitated by early childhood experts and designed for early childhood teachers and Foundation teachers new to the TLDS, will discuss key features of a positive transition to school, writing the TLDS using a strength-based approach, involving children and families in the transition process, the benefits of play-based and inquiry-led learning, and planning for Term 1, 2023.

This online workshop will be repeated over three sessions, allowing participants to choose the date that best suits them.
