EDUCATION TRANSITIONS EARLY CHILDHOOD
The transition from preschool to primary school is recognised in early childhood education literature as an important social and educational process for young children and their families (Hopps, 2014). This paper will consider a research project which was commissioned by Forbairt Naíonraí Teo (agency for Irish-medium preschools) and Gaelscoileanna Teo (agency for Irish-medium Schools) in 2010 on transitions between pre-school and primary school through the Irish language and aims to contribute to understanding the role of second languages within the transition process.
