The transition from home to school is a major change in children's lives. Children vary in their "readiness" for this transition, and the marked differences visible in children's cognitive and social/emotional skills at school entry have implications for later outcomes. In this paper, Ben Edwards, Jennifer Baxter, Diana Smart, Ann Sanson and Alan Hayes examine the impact of living in financial disadvantage on children's school readiness and the role that other risk and protective factors play.
