Planning and Implementing an Educational Programme for the Smooth Transition from Kindergarten to Primary School: The Greek Project in All-Day Kindergartens
Carida, Helen Ch.
Curriculum Journal, v22 n1 p77-92 Mar 2011
The transition from kindergarten to primary school constitutes a significant point in children's development, entailing definitive effects on their personality and the formation of their behaviour, but also on their school performance. Innovative Educational Programmes constitute a nodal point for the development of cooperation among the educational institutions, aiming to facilitate the transition procedure. Based on the circular of the Ministry of National Education and Religious Affairs (Ref. No. 8495, 19-11-2007) and within the framework of Sub-programme 6, entitled "Innovative interventions in all-day kindergartens", in the 4th District of Preschool Education, Prefecture of Piraeus, school year 2007-8, six transition projects were prepared, having as their subject the "Facilitation of the smooth transition from kindergarten to primary school". The aim of this article is to present the results from the six aforementioned programmes. (Contains 2 notes.)
