If your Day Care service has faced assessment or is about to complete or review this process, this booklet is another tool for compliance under the NQS
Wouldn't it be great if there were specific tools - out of the box - designed especially for long day care to help us meet the National Quality Standards Quality Areas! That's why Butler Creative Childcare Resources has developed this Transition to School Booklet. This all-in-one fun booklet for children and educators which documents the child's strengths and interests for a smooth transition from the Education and Care service.
This booklet provides evidence towards Quality Area 6: Collaborative partnerships with families and communities:
Specifically - How do we support each child's transition from and to other education and care environments? How do we support each child's successful transition to formal schooling?
It contains information about the child and his or her family, likes and dislikes, strengths and milestones - all useful information for their new teacher at big school.
The child can personalise the book with included stickers (pre-printed or hand-drawn), as well as photos and drawings by the child.
The educator also fills in their information based on observations and experience.
This beautifully designed book will be welcomed by any kindy teacher and would make a lovely addition to the child's final portfolio from day care.
