This topic for December focuses on the importance of transitions (that is change) in children’s lives. In every transition, a child has to adapt to the changes and parents need to be aware and help their children deal with the changes in a positive way.
This topic discusses possible challenges children may face during transitions (especially when entering Primary school), and presents suggestions and strategies for supporting and preparing children to cope with the changes.
Schoolbag.sg is an online publication by the Ministry of Education, Singapore (MOE) which features a number of articles about supporting children during transitions. In addition, there are also workshops and seminars on related topics organised by MOE and the Early Childhood Development Agency for parents.
