Transitions and alignment from preschool to kindergarten


Based on research and work with states, Education Commission of the States has identified these two key elements that states can consider when creating a coordinated preschool-to-third grade system: - Effective transition programs and practices that help the child and family move smoothly and successfully from one learning setting to another. - Authentic alignment of the basic pedagogical components of early learning and kindergarten to create continuous learning and teaching experiences. This brief elaborates on these key elements and provides examples of state efforts and strategies for creating successful transitions. (author abstract)
