In this presentation we will explore what actually matters for our children, how we can support children and families in a meaningful way to be ready for life and therefore also for the transition to more formal education. We will look at the dispositions, knowledge, skills and behaviours that will enable children to participate, to be ready for learning and to succeed in a school environment. This is even more important now than ever before.
