and Kindergarten Classroom Teachers
When children begin school, they draw from previously learned skills and behaviors to help them adjust. If the two environments are different or incompatible, children may have difficulty learning the new routines and rules, making new friends, and functioning in the new settings. Thus, one of our roles as educators is to try and reduce the differences and enhance the similarities between the environments so that children are able to make a smooth transition. This means that there is continuity between settings.
section provides ideas on how
to help build continuity between children’s early care settings
to promote practices that help children have the best transition possible.
You will find many tips, activities, and concrete ideas here to help
you with the transition process. This section of the website is divided
into two areas: sending program (or preschool teacher) area and receiving
program (or kindergarten teacher) area.
