School Transitions

Starting school is an important milestone for every child and their parents. At Little Petals we believe that when children leave our nursery to embark on the next chapter in their lives we must do all we can to support and celebrate this transition, ensuring the children are well prepared for the next stage in their learning. 

We understand that change and transition can be stressful and upsetting for both parents and the children.  Little Petals aim to support this transition by making sure each child will be ready to start school, will be ready to learn, make new friends and be ready to start their new journey.

We will plan activities such as - Uniform days

                                                   - Stories about starting school

                                                   - Role Playing  

Each child's Learning and Development Summary will be sent directly to the school at the end of the summer term before leaving nursery.

We believe that it is important to liaise with the school prior to children joining them and will invite teachers to visit the nursery to see the children in their comfortable learning environment. 

Transition is an ongoing process and we invite input from parents / carers about their child at any time.
