Parents' Observations about Their Children's Transitions to Kindergarten.
Pianta, Robert C.; Kraft-Sayre, Marcia
Young Children, v54 n3 p47-52 May 1999
Analyzed parents' observations and perceptions of the transition process of their children into kindergarten. Found that even though most parents (two-thirds) reported satisfactory transitions, 47% of responses contained negative features, reflecting difficulties during transition. Parents found ongoing communication, agreed-upon performance standards, familiarity with school, and previous experience in preschool or childcare helpful in easing the transition process. (AMC)
