Parents Evening Transitions Preschool to Primary


Introducing National Parents Council Primary Early Years Services

An information evening for Parents and Practitioners will be held on 13th March at 7 pm in the Old Ground Hotel, Ennis.   

The transition from pre-school to primary school can be one of the most important transitions that your child will make. By providing this programme for you, we can support you to support your child to make a smooth transition between pre-school and primary school. The success of this transition can benefit your child all the way through primary school, providing better outcomes for your child socially, emotionally and educationally.

At the training you will…..
-Meet other parents whose children are starting primary school
- Explore the possible changes you and your child may experience during this transition
- Learn how you can support your child at home through play and meaningful interactions
- Receive a brief overview of the primary school curriculum, how and what your child will learn
- Be supported to prepare for new routines for both you and your child
- Meet local representatives of the County Child Care Committee who can assist with any questions around the ECCE programme

We are delighted to announce that representatives from the NCSE (National Council for Special Educa-tion) & AIM ( Access and Inclusion Model ) will also be in attendance to deliver an information session for parents and guardians. They will each outline the supports available to children with special educational needs , in both pre-schools & primary schools, and provide information which will help parents support their child’s transition from preschool to primary school.
