Sue Dockett is Emeritus Professor of Early Childhood Education, having recently retired from Charles Sturt University, Albury, Australia. Over more than 30 years, she has been actively involved in early childhood education as a teacher, academic and researcher. Much of Sue’s current research agenda is focused on educational transitions; in particular, transitions to school and the expectations, experiences and perceptions of all involved. This research has been published widely, and has had substantial impact on policy, practice and research. Complementing her research around educational transitions is research that incorporates children’s perspectives, engages with families in diverse contexts, reflects upon the practices of educators, and explores the importance of working with communities.
