Ensuring Young Children Have a Head Start: Transition Practices that Link Early Childhood Education Settings


In collaboration with the Pennsylvania Office of Child Development and Early Learning (OCDEL), the goals of this research project are to expand the extant literature to evaluate young children’s experience as they transition from an EHS to HS. The proposed study has three major aims that will be addressed through partnership with OCDEL and EHS/HS staff and families: 1) adapt the NECTC survey for EHS/HS 2) examine transition practices used by EHS and HS staff and the interrelationship with variables, 3) examine the additive benefits of use of transition practices by EHS, HS, and both programs on children’s developmental outcomes in the preschool year.
