In this concluding chapter we synthesise the previous chapters and explore what can be gleaned about the transition to school in Cuba, Chile, Brazil, and Mexico. Before we examine this in detail, we provide an overview of the COVID-19 crisis and its potential impact on transition to school, arguing that a broad focus on transitions and strategies to promote the wellbeing of all involved matters now more than ever. We follow this with an update – drawn from chapter author reports and documentation – of the impact of COVID-19 on transitions experiences in each of the countries. The chapter concludes with analysis and synthesis of the themes, issues and directions identified across the previous chapters.
