The Waltham Forest Council Early Years and Childcare Team have created an initiative called ‘Starting School Together’ – to support schools, early years provision and families help children successfully transition to school.

Starting school is an important stage in a child’s life. Supporting children to successfully transition to school helps them start positively on their next learning and development journey. During Covid-19, we will ensure that ‘Starting School Together’ effectively provides a range of support and advice to schools, childcare providers and parents/carers regarding transition through a focus on digital approaches to deliver and share information.

Schools, early years provision  and families who have a child transitioning to reception can find out more about this exciting project through the links below:
