The concept of school readiness is a fraught one; and this book explores the problems with the term and instead focuses on the key factors behind the Characteristics of Effective Learning. This includes ideas for promoting playing and exploring, active learning and creating and thinking critically. The book also considers how we can ensure that schools are children-ready and suggests ways in which pre-schools and nurseries can work collaboratively with schools and engage parents and carers to ensure a smooth transition.
