From 2005–8 Mangere Bridge Kindergarten carried out a Centre of Innovation research project exploring the transition between early childhood education and school. Three teacher researchers, supported by two university research associates, developed and researched a range of strategies for supporting children’s learning as the children and their families “crossed the border” between sectors. This article summarises some of the key findings from the project and provides insights into the ways in which the transition to school can be supported.
