What’s it like in big school?
Starting School supports young children in the transition to primary school. An initiative by Kilkenny Education Centre and Kilkenny County Childcare Committee, the book is the first of its kind in Ireland to share the stories of children as they settle into primary education.
The publication can be used by parents, pre-school practitioners and teachers with young children to open and support discussion about starting primary school. As the child’s voice is the central feature of the book, children will relate to the language and ideas and will have a better understanding of an area of transition that is common to all children.
Starting School has been produced in partnership with Kilkenny Education Centre, Kilkenny County Childcare Committee and Kids’ Own Publishing Partnership. Junior infants children from St Canice’s NS, Presentation NS, Castlecomer GNS, Wandesforde NS, and St. John of God, GNS in Kilkenny created the content for the book.
