Getting Parents "Ready" for Kindergarten: The Role of Early Childhood Education.
This research brief presents preliminary evidence that family involvement in young children's education may contribute to a smooth transition to elementary school not only for children, but also for parents, by helping to prepare them for later involvement in their children's learning. The brief draws from the literature on transition, recent findings from the School Transition Study at the Harvard Family Research Project, and recommended practices from early childhood professionals.
