Research shows that children who participate in a quality early childhood education program for at least 600 hours in the year before school are more likely to arrive at school equipped with the social, cognitive and emotional skills they need to engage in learning (Department of Education, 2018).
The Aspect Building Tots Transition to Preschool program targets all children including children with a disability, children from CALD backgrounds and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander whom are between 2-4 years of age and are not attending an early childhood education setting.
The program’s objective is to identify these children and provide support to families and centres to facilitate the successful transition of the child into an early childhood education setting.
The key elements of Building Tots Transition to Preschool include:
- Transition Support including up to six visits to your child’s new early childhood education setting
- Optional Screening Service for children presenting with signs of developmental delay
- Access to an Online Virtual Playgroup, Sensory Story Times and Parent/Carer training webinars
The Building Tots Transition to Preschool Program is funded by the Department of Education under the Start Strong Initiative.
