Administration for Children, Youth, and Families (DHHS), Washington, DC. Head Start Bureau.
This booklet provides a variety of ideas for preschool and kindergarten teachers and administrators interested in working cooperatively to establish linkages and ease the transition between educational settings for young children and their families. Benefits of facilitating transition for children, parents, and teachers and keys to successful transition are listed. Subsequent discussion concerns: (1) providing program continuity through developmentally appropriate curricula for preschool and kindergarten children; (2) maintaining communication between preschool and kindergarten staff; (3) preparing children for transition; and (4) involving parents in the transition. Differences and similarities between preschool and kindergarten children and programs are considered. (RH)
