Change can be difficult in any circumstance. Even though the transition from pre-school to primary is an anticipated transition there is still an impact on familiar roles, relationships and routines. Your child is moving from the familiar to the unfamiliar and how the transition changes the relationships, roles and routines can impact the emotional wellbeing of your child either positively or negatively.

This workshop aims to help you

  • Understand the impact of transitions and learn ways of empowering your child to make the change
  • Respond to any feelings arising from the transition in a non-judgemental, child-centred, playful way
  • Learn strategies to facilitate and celebrate a conscious ending of pre-school and a hopeful beginning to primary
