Duncan, Judith
This paper discusses the transition for children in New Zealand form their early childhood centres to school on their fifth birthday. It describes the early childhood context in New Zealand and the seamless education system within which it resides. The paper identifies the issues for New Zealand children as they move from early childhood to compulsory schooling and reflects on a recent New Zealand research study where the researchers have been following a group of children from one sector to the other.
