ECC works with Wabash to refine transition practices
October 29, 2020
Lynne Hall, research associate at the Early Childhood Center, is working with preschool and kindergarten practitioners in Wabash, IN. to refine and align their kindergarten transition practices to increase preschoolers’ school readiness. This technical assistance involves guiding preschool and kindergarten teachers to collaboratively identify essential evidence-based kindergarten readiness skills and the evidence-based kindergarten transition practices that attribute to their development in preschool and kindergarten classrooms. Teachers will conduct observations and interviews based on findings and use the data to develop, pilot, and evaluate an essential skills checklist, provide guidance to families, and inform their practice. This effort is funded by a Preschool Development Grant facilitated by the Wabash Community Foundation.
