Transition to School Program

31-Dec-2019



Liverpool City Council Children's Services in conjunction with Liverpool City Library would like to introduce a new transition to school program.  The program was developed to meet a need in the Liverpool community to support and guide children in their smooth transition to school.   This program will be run by qualified early childhood teachers who currently work in council's early education and care centres across Liverpool.  A strong transition to school program is vital for children who are attending 'big school' as it gives them the strategies they need to have a positive start to school.  Children must be 4 years and over.

When & Where:  The program runs on different days at local library branches.

Cost: Free!

What to Bring: A healthy snack (we suggest one piece of fruit, crackers and some cheese)

How to Register: Call the Children's Services Administration Team on 8711 7568 for more information
