*NEW* Terrific Transitions Publication

The Williamsburg-James City County Public Schools use a form to share information between the preschool teacher and the kindergarten teacher. You can access this form here and adapt it to suit your community.

The Good Beginnings Alliance/Oahu, in Hawaii, received a federal Early Learning Opportunities Act (ELOA) grant of approximately $1 million. Several projects were developed with monies received from this grant. One recently developed resource is the Toolkit of best practices for transitions. Good Beginnings has graciously allowed access to their Toolkit via this website. This publication provides many sample letters and forms, as well as techniques for providing best practices in kindergarten transitions. You may use these examples to customize communication for your center, school, or community. For further information, contact Jeanne Riley at riley@aloha.net or contact Good Beginnings at readiness@goodbeginnings.org Visit the Good Beginnings website at: www.goodbeginnings.org/school.htm
