TRANSITION TO SCHOOL

Liverpool City Council Children’s Services in conjunction with Liverpool City Library runs a transition to school program to meet a need in the Liverpool community to support and guide children in their smooth transition to school. The program is run by a qualified early childhood teacher who currently works in Council’s early education and care centres.

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 aged 4 years and over and not attend any Liverpool City Council child care centres.

Cost: Free (one 10 week session per child only).

In 2021, the program will be running in Terms 2, 3 and 4.

For more information and to register your interest, please call Liverpool City Council Children's Services on 8711 7568.
