Learning to cut their food, open their snack box and water bottle are important skills. Look at the transition tip below for more information and activities to develop.
Transition Tip 3 Catch Me...being engaged in play
Children have their own interests and ideas. It's about finding what they are happy to engage in and develop confidence alongside other skills such as speaking and listening.
