    The NCCA Mo Scéal: Moving from Preschool to Primary

    Templates are now available on-line on NCCA’s website, see link below:


    Mo Scéal means ‘my story’ and the templates help to tell the story of the child’s learning and development. This information will be shared with parents and, with their consent, with the primary school.

    There is no requirement to use the Mo Scéal templates. Rather, they are a resource which preschools and schools might find helpful as they collaborate in supporting young children and their families at this key transition. As transition is a process over many months, ideas for fun and engaging activities are also available on-line.
