What is Best Start?  Kindergarten teachers have the opportunity to observe the children individually participating in a range of tasks. This assists the teachers in developing appropriate teaching and learning programs.  Kindergarten teachers have always taken time at the beginning of the year to see how each child works with books, letters, and numbers. However, in Best Start, all Kindergarten teachers across NSW public schools, use the same set of observation tasks.
