Siblings and Buddies: Providing Expert Advice about Starting School
Dockett, Sue; Perry, Bob
International Journal of Early Years Education, v21 n4 p348-361 2013
This paper investigates the role of child experts (siblings and buddies) in young children's transition to school. Drawing on two recent studies, that sought the perspectives of children, educators and family members about effective supports at this time, we explore the roles of other children in the processes and practices of transition. This exploration is informed by sociocultural theories which position transitions as collectively produced and shared with significant others.
