Ready Steady School – Transition

Blue Skies Initiative Ready Steady School Programme is created to help support children in their transition from early years to primary school. A large number of Early Years Services across Clondalkin/Balgaddy and Adamstown take part in the Ready Steady School Programme each year and send out a number of resources to parents and guardians. Some of these resources can be found below.

We have now translated our packs into Arabic, French, Lithuanian, Polish, Romanian, Russian
