Camden Libraries have created a range of resources to assist young learners in transitioning to school, be it for the first time, returning to school from the summer holidays, or adjusting to school after learning from home for the majority of 2021.


The resources complement the popular Getting Ready for School Booklet, developed by the NSW Department of Education and Communities, which is full of advice and tips that will assist in the transition period from preschool to Kindergarten. The series of PDFs include the topics of Setting the Scene, Getting Ready, Settling in and Looking Forward.


Camden Libraries offer a wide range of resources to boost literacy and enhance reading development for children. These include a book club, reading program and other developmental programs and resources, created by professionals. 


The library website has a range of engaging e-resources to support children’s education, such as a StoryBox Library, World Book Encyclopaedia, National Geographic Kids, and Studiosity which enables your child to receive feedback and study help from an online tutor.


“The e-resources available are like no other and parents should take advantage of the information as it can assist their children in many ways,” said Mayor of Camden Cr Therese Fedeli.


“We know that schooling has been difficult over the past two years, due to many COVID-19 interruptions, however we are finally getting back on track and it is important now more than ever that we look after our children and help them feel supported through the transition back into the classroom.”
