What is the Entry to School program?
This six-month, group program will focus on helping children develop school-readiness skills in:
- Social interaction
- Learning and focus of attention
At the conclusion of the group program, children will receive individual transition supports as they enter school, including targeted consultations with entry to school program staff during their first six months in school, as needed.
