Some children take to school without any problems at all. From the very first day they walk through the school gates they seem to settle in, make friends and begin to achieve. However, for others the transition can be traumatic and the process long and painful. This course explores what ‘school readiness’ means and how Early Years Practitioners can be proactive in ensuring that children are ready for the changes ahead.
