The five pamphlets of the Collectively Investing in 3–5-year-olds series will be released gradually over a 16-month period, lining up with the five key moments of a successful first transition to school. Simple and concise, they emphasize the importance of ensuring that all stakeholders—the children themselves and their families, support networks, daycares, and schools—are valued and work together. The pamphlets convey relevant information rooted in the real world for each key moment.
