Transition to Kindergarten

Transition to school is one of the most important steps in a young child’s life. Children must learn to navigate academic, behavioral and social expectations that might be different from the expectations at home or in the early learning setting. Parents might feel discomfort and fear about sending their child into this new experience. Well planned, collaborative transition models build trust and relationships among children, families, teachers and the school community. Systematic strategies and common understanding of terms and approaches among stakeholders can increase the success of transition practices.
