    Managing the transition to school has become a focus of Australian education policy at local, state and national levels. In recent years, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of transition programmes, approaches and interventions all aimed to ease the transition to school. Many of these assume that the transition to school is problematic, particularly for some groups of children, families and communities. One aim then, of transition programmes and approaches, has been to manage transitions in ways that ameliorate these problems.
