every child, starting nursery (or school) for the first time can be a huge,

These cards have been designed to help practitioners support children’s day-to-day transition between home and setting. They can be used as a resource for both settling new children into the setting and reinforcing a positive transition for children who are already there.
The downloadable templates on this page will help you make two sets of cards:
- ‘home to setting’ cards showing

- ‘setting to home’ cards showing photos of familiar people, things and places from a child’s daily routine when they are with you in the setting
