2020: Transitions support materials for parents

2020: Transitions support materials for parents

Moving from preschool to primary school is an important and exciting time for children and their families. There are lots of activities that parents can do to support their child’s learning and development as they get ready to begin Junior Infants. Here is a list of resources for parents. 

The following form will help parents to share useful information about their child’s learning and development with the teacher of Junior Infants. Mo Scéal means ‘My story’ and the form helps to tell the child’s story – their likes, dislikes, interests, strengths and challenges. There is no requirement for parents to complete this form but if parents decide to complete it they can give it to the teacher on the child’s first day at school.
