Transition to Kindergarten


Transition to Kindergarten is one of the most significant and memorable transitions that a young child experiences in his or her formative years.  This exciting transition lays the foundation for a child’s success in school.

Transition to Kindergarten is a planned and meaningful journey that requires the collaboration of teachers, administrators and families.

“… it is essential that the transition to school occur in such a way that children and families have a positive view of the school and that children have a feeling of perceived competence as learners.” (Bailey in Pianta, 1999, p. xv)

Children will enter kindergarten with higher levels of comfort/lower levels of stress.

    • Parents will establish lines of communication with their children's teachers before school begins. This communication will carry over to new teachers as the child progresses through school.

    • The perception of school and learning by the community will improve.

    • The frequency of dropouts will decline.

    • The achievement differential between students from middle income families and those from low income families will move upwards toward convergence.

    • Schools will initiate efforts to facilitate transitions into school and between grade levels.
