Coordinators' Notebook: An International Resource for Early Childhood Development, n21 1997
If children are to benefit from a healthy, supportive early childhood experience, it is important to strengthen transitions between early childhood experiences in educational and care settings and the more formal educational system. This issue of Coordinator's Notebook focuses on strengthening linkages and transitions between home, preschool, and primary school. The journal is divided into five sections. "Removing Roadblocks to Success: Transitions and Linkages between Home, Preschool, and Primary School" (Robert G. Myers) examines several approaches in which transitions between early childhood experiences and schooling can be supported and linkages built between home, care settings, and schools to strengthen children's ability to thrive as they move out into the world."Diagnosis and Solutions: Efforts to Address Transitions and Linkages in Diverse Countries" (Judith L. Evans) describes activities to strengthen linkages and transitions in Kenya, Indonesia, New Zealand, the Philippines, South Africa, Guyana, Colombia, and India. "Related Resources" presents available UNICEF titles related to this topic and information available on the World Wide Web. "The New CG Secretariat: An International Exchange of ECCD (Early Childhood Care and Development) Knowledge and Experience" presents the goals and activities of the newly restructured Secretariat, a forum for regional representatives and the donor consortium to engage in knowledge gathering, synthesis and dissemination, networking, technical assistance, and early childhood care and development advocacy."Network Notes" reports on the activities, meetings and calendar of the Secretariat and of the Partners of the Consultative Group on ECCD.
