Transition to School – Literature Review

The NSW Department of Education, Center for Education Statistics and Evaluation, has prepared a document that examines the existing literature on the transition to primary school from home and/or early childhood education and care.This encompasses a number of issues, including:

  • What constitutes a successful transition to school.
  • How school readiness is defined and measured.
  • What factors contribute to a positive transition and what factors can make this transition more challenging.
  • How the transition to school fits with learning frameworks and progressions.

There is clear agreement across the literature about the importance of a positive transition to school, and growing recognition that the early years are a critical period for the development of the key components of school readiness.
