As part of the kindergarten program, teachers prepare an end-of-year Transition Statement.
The transition statement provides a snapshot of your child’s knowledge, skills and dispositions for learning across the five learning and development areas for the state-based learning guideline. Kindergarten teachers develop the statement from a strengths-based perspective and draw from information you have shared about your child, along with observations and formative and summative assessments of your child’s learning and development recorded across the year.
Transition statements help families to:
- Understand their child’s learning and development progress
- Share information with their child’s school to support continuity of learning.
For schools, transition statements help Prep teachers to:
- Understand each child’s learning and development progress
- Support each child’s successful transition to school.
