Collaborating for Seamless Transitions from Early Childhood Education into Elementary Schools in Tulsa, Oklahoma
Fain, Amy; Contreras, Diane Eason
Voices in Urban Education, n43 p16-26 2016
Oklahoma implemented universal pre-K in 1998. It is one of only five states that has or is implementing universal preschool, and for several years has served more four-year-old children than any other state. The organization, Community Action Project (CAP) Tulsa, occupies a unique position in this work. As one of the largest anti-poverty agencies in Oklahoma--and the largest provider of early childhood programs serving children from birth to age five in Tulsa--the work complements public preschool programs by focusing on families in poverty. It is believed that the most effective way to address poverty is to promote the healthy development of young children through high-quality early childhood education and wraparound supports. This article discusses the CAP program and how it collaborates with schools to facilitate pre-K students' successful transitions to the early elementary grades.
