Transition to Parenthood


The Transition to Early Learning and Care Centres

It is a big decision to leave your child in the care of others.  This transition can come with some extra emotions.  You and your child might feel excited, enthusiastic or nervous. By preparing for this really important step you will help to make yourself and your child comfortable with your decision.  This will make you and your child settle into the new routine more easily.  Preparing will help your child gain all the benefits of attending a quality early learning and care setting.


The Transition to Big School

For many parents their child’s move to big school can be an emotional time.  It is normal to be a little worried about how your child will settle and adjust to their new surroundings, but you should remember that making the transition to big school is a time of excitement and new beginnings for your child.
