Friendships over the Transition from Early Childhood Centre to School.
Ledger, Eileen; Smith, Anne B.; Rich, Peter
International Journal of Early Years Education, v8 n1 p57-69 Mar 2000
Observed friendships of sixteen 4- to 5-year-olds during their transition to school. Found that important shared activities for friends over the transition included birthday parties, overnight stays, resource sharing, and reciprocal or complementary play. Only two dyadic friendships survived over the transition. Children with friends did not make an easier transition to school than children without friends. (Author/KB)
