Abstract

Outcomes and Indicators of a Positive Start to School is world-leading research. It provides the first evidence to support an understanding of how to measure the outcomes and indicators of a positive transition to school. The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD) commissioned this research to examine the application of an outcomes measurement of a positive transition to school and build upon the findings of an earlier project that identified these outcomes for children, their families and educators (Nolan, Hamm, McCartin and Hunt, 2009). The evidence is clear that children’s readiness, transition and initial adjustment to school is critical for their development, wellbeing and progress throughout the school years. This evidence has informed a number of Victorian State Government policies and initiatives and much has been learnt about transition processes. However, until recently, little research had examined what a positive start to school looks like for children, families and educators.
