Transition from Preschool to Kindergarten: A Professional Learning Community

Transition from Preschool to Kindergarten

A Professional Learning Community

 

It is important for all children and families to experience a positive transition from preschool to kindergarten. In order for this to occur, districts and preschool programs should create transition strategies to ensure that all children enter kindergarten successfully.

To facilitate this effort, the State Support Team Region 1 is offering a Professional Learning Community (PLC) to enable teams of preschool and kindergarten educators to examine current practices and collaborate on developing strategies and resources to enhance the transition of children from preschool to kindergarten. The PLC will take place throughout the 2017-2018 school year.
