Hsis Early Years - Managing Effective Transitions from Nursery to Reception


This session will increase knowledge and understanding of:

  • How PVI staff can support children’s transitions to school
  • How Reception staff can support children’s transitions from Nursery
  • How to carry out a home visit
  • Parents meetings
  • SMART planning for transition
  • How to support children and parents
  • Safeguarding requirements


Transitions are key moments in children’s lives. Children who are settled and happy in Nursery face upheaval when they move to school and this transition should be carefully managed. The manner in which adults manage children’s transitions is crucial in ensuring that children are well prepared for the next phase in their education. This course will consider SMART planning for transition, information sharing and how to support children and parents through transition. It will also consider which children may be particularly vulnerable at a time of transition and how these children can be supported. A third element that will be discussed is child protection requirements for sharing of information between professionals at the time of transition.


Following this course you will be able to:

  • Review your settings’ policy and procedures
  • Formulate a SMART plan for managing transitions
  • Confidently support children and parents through transition
