Please see the below information from the NPC - National Parents Council which maybe be of intrest to parents who have children transitioning from preschool to primary school.

Due to Covid-19 we are unable to continue with the delivery of the parent programme supporting transitions from pre-school to primary school around the country as we had planned.  However, we still feel that it is important that we support parents to prepare themselves and their children for this transition so we have developed a short video with some of the key information from the programme which is available here. 

There is no need to register just hit the play button below and if you have any questions please contact one of our helpline officers at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. who will be happy to assist you.
