Transitioning to Kindergarten

Our board’s two transition officers, Andrea Shattler and Steven Tremblay, have prepared a new set of resources for parents and families whose children will be transitioning to kindergarten this year. It aims to ensure that the transition to the preschool education program for 4 and 5 year-olds is a positive learning experience.

This is an important transition for children because it sets the foundation for future transitions. On this resource page, parents will find several important transition-related items , including two presentations on the preschool education for 4 and 5 year-olds respectively. It also includes other related resources, such as information and tips on starting school and strategies to help with separation anxiety, and how parents can support their child’s transition during COVID. Finally, additional resources can be found from CISSSO as well as our partner organization Connexions Resource Centre.
