Welcome, this week how to support your child to make a successful transition to the wide world of Big School. Also, challenge your child with our fun and complex maths and numeracy activities.
How educators help children prepare for big school
While some children move to a new house in their early years and others welcome a sibling, starting school is a transition that's shared by all children. It involves settling into a new routine, navigating a new environment and learning new things. While it's a universal experience, each child will approach the transition in their own way.

Where one preschooler may be counting down the days till school starts, another might be feeling a little fretful, and another might not know what to think.

Fortunately, early childhood educators are adept at helping each and every child prepare for their transition from early learning to primary education. Here we look at some of the ways that educators support children and families to help make this move a positive experience for everyone.
Adding fun and complexity to preschool maths
Preschool learning doesn't need to be as easy as A, B, C and 1, 2, 3. In fact, when it comes to numeracy, an American study suggests that preschoolers can learn much more complicated maths than we give them credit for.

Here we look at Vanderbilt University's findings in more detail, and see how you can extend your mini-mathematician's skills by adding fun to new numerical concepts.
