This unit focuses on knowledge and skills teachers require to be able to support children making transitions, whether the transition is from home to early childhood education and care (ECEC) settings, moving from one age group in ECEC settings to another, from ECEC settings to school, participating in before or after school programs, or from home to school. The unit will examine the teacher’s role in supporting children’s transition, including preparing children for transition, planning transition activities that maintain children’s sense of agency and adhering to relevant curriculum and policy guidelines. It will focus on how to develop positive relationships with families, local community members and other professionals to ensure transition practices are inclusive and equitable. As part of this unit preservice teachers will compile a case study where they will conduct a literature review, critique key stakeholder perspectives, analyse transition policies and develop a transition plan.
