The Head Start-Public Schools Collaboration Demonstration Project (CDP) included 13 teams of Head Start programs and their local elementary schools who worked together to improve the transition to kindergarten for children and their families. As teams worked to achieve their goals, they used research-based strategies and activities that fostered four points of connection that can help support successful transitions from early learning settings to kindergarten. Explore this handout to discover key research on the four connections and learn from the teams about the innovative practical examples of successful transition to kindergarten activities.
