Four Important Things to Know About the Transition to School

Transitioning from school to school, program to program, or even grade level to grade level is a process, not just a one-time event, and strong family-school-community relationships across the transition are important for children’s success. This Global Family Research Project report highlights four important things schools should recognize about the early childhood and elementary school transition process.

  1. Transition is a Matter of Equity
  2. A Smooth Transition to School Makes a Difference for Children’s Outcomes
  3. Families Play an Important Role in the Transition to School
  4. It’s all About Relationships – Among Families, Early Childhood Programs, Schools, and Communities
