Transition to Kindergarten

Preschool children make the transition into kindergarten more successfully when their schools and families prepare it together, and when their preschool and kindergarten teachers connect. Also, by coordinating transition efforts, preschool and elementary programs can help children maintain and maximize the gains they made in preschool. Watch this video and use the materials below to plan and carry out a successful transition for all your preschool children to kindergarten.
