Little Steps to Big School Covid-19 Response

Little Steps to Big School Covid-19 Response

Back in October 2019, The Genesis Programme relaunched the ‘Little Steps to Big School’ resources to support children making the transition from preschool to primary school. However because of the many changes for young children during Covid-19 we needed to review those resources once again.
In early May we met via Zoom with our participating Primary Schools and Early Learning & Care Centres, in the meeting we shared ideas of how to best support children starting school in these challenging times.
On Friday 5th June after  lots of hard work from all, we distributed 600 new Transition Packs to participating schools.
Each pack included:
  • School Readiness Calendar
  • Personalised ‘My School’ Book
  • Fine Motor Skills Development Sheet
  • Louth Library Information
  • Home Learning Resources from NALA (National Adult Literacy Agency)
The resources will be delivered by each participating school to incoming Junior Infants over the coming weeks.
