ECE Resources

ECE webinar: Transitions from ECE to School – Part 2

COMING UP: 8PM MONDAY OCTOBER 4

This webinar, presented by Sally Peters and Hazel Woodhouse, focuses on children’s transition to school. We will examine the Pathways section of Te Whāriki and its potential to support learning as children transition from early childhood education to school.

Our focus is on how teachers in ECE and school might utilise the two curriculum documents to ‘weave’ new learning as the whāriki expands. These ideas will be illustrated through some practical examples. We conclude by thinking about the current work on the Curriculum Refresh.

Please join us for this informative and interactive online session, during which there will be time to ask questions. Register now to receive reminders closer to the time.

You can watch a recording of the Transitions part 1 webinar here.

A recording of this webinar will be posted on this page after the session. Make sure you’re registered on this website to use the Bookmark function to make it easier to find this page again.
