Description

The move to kindergarten form early-childhood education is a difficult transition. Students are faced with new routines, new curriculum, new people and new environments which present many challenges. My study of peer reviewed articles examines different transitional practices schools across the globe use to prepare children for kindergarten as well as the perspectives of parents and teachers on their school’s transitional programs. Both parents and teachers find that high-intensity transitional programs are the most beneficial; however, they are the lease common. With the information gathered from my study, teachers and schools will be able to develop their own successful, research based transition programs.
