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.
