Description:

This is the first in a series of Key Findings from the third wave of interviews with the Infant Cohort in Growing Up in Ireland. The families of around 11,000 children were initially interviewed in 2008/09 when the Study Children were nine months old. They were reinterviewed between January and August 2011 when the children were three years of age, and between March and September 2013, when the children were five years old. This Key Finding presents descriptive information on the child's transition to primary school.

Starting school is a very important milestone for the developing child. Primary school plays an important role in the child's life and can have a substantial impact not only on their educational development but also on their emotional and social wellbeing.
