Online session: Getting ready for kindergarten and school

Moreland Council will be facilitating an online session for parents, carers and educators, which will identify the differences between preschool and school settings and discuss children’s personal characteristics, skills and attitudes that support them in these settings. Strategies and experiences that help children transition into preschool and school will be discussed along with challenges children and parents might experience, and other issues. The session will be facilitated by Kay Margetts, an Associate Professor and Honorary Principal Fellow of the Melbourne Graduate School of Education. She has undertaken significant research in the area of children’s transition and adjustment to school and regularly consults on early childhood development, learning and teaching both locally and internationally.

The session will be held via a Zoom link Tuesday 26 May 2020 from 7.00pm-9.00pm.
