Educator practice guide: Engaging families during the pre-K to kindergarten transition

Parents are in a unique position to provide consistent stimulation and support for children's learning during the pre-K to kindergarten transition.

The way parents support their child's early learning as they transition to kindergarten changes over time. 2. There are significant differences in parent engagement practices in rural versus urban communities. (author abstract)
