  • Develop understanding of the transition needs of children from migrant and BME communities
  • Identify what theories and practice methods are being used in transition work with these children and to what extent these incorporate Freobelian principles
  • Identify which of these practice methods are seen by children, their families, early years workers and primarily school teachers to be most effective
