Planning the Transition to Kindergarten: Collaborations, Connections, and Six Steps to Success

This document provides a step-by-step approach to build, implement, and evaluate a kindergarten transition plan. The authors first explain the importance of kindergarten transition, forming a transition team, and fostering four types of connections (child-school, family-school, school-school, and community school). Then, the authors walk through six steps for successful kindergarten transition planning: 1) assess your partnerships; 2) identify goals; 3) assess current transition activities; 4) identify data or evidence that show whether practices are working; 5) plan and prioritize; and 6) implement and evaluate.
