Family Handbook - Enrolling your child | Goodstart

Real learning can't be hurried.

Every child develops at a different pace, and when you and your Centre Director feel your child is ready, your child will move to a new room and new experiences. This is what we call “transitioning”. Transitioning between rooms is an important part of growing up and most children become very excited about taking the next step.

Transitioning process.

Some children need a little more time than others to transition. This is completely natural. Every child is unique and the transition itself takes place in stages. Your child will ‘visit’ the new room for small but increasing amounts of time, and your child will get as much time as he or she needs to make the move. We’ll also stay in touch with you regularly to ensure you’re fully aware of your child’s progress

Things we consider.

By the time your child is ready to transition, your centre will have taken steps to ensure the process is as easy and smooth as possible.

Certain basic social and emotional skills need to be learned before a move is possible and safe, so while your child is in their current room, we assess their readiness to transition. We make very sure he or she is ready to make the transition with as little disruption as possible.

We will then work together to ensure your child is ready to move to the next room.
