Secondary Analyses of Data on Child Care: Transition to Kindergarten
||An analysis of data from the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study-Birth Cohort to identify practices that early care and education (ECE) programs can implement to promote successful transition to kindergarten for children served by the Child Care and Development Fund. The study explores three primary research questions: (1) What transition practices are used in ECE programs?; (2) How do ECE and kindergarten transition practices and alignment of ECE and kindergarten teachers' expectations about school readiness affect transition and school readiness outcomes?; and (3) What transition practices and outcomes are experienced by specific subgroups? The results of the study are expected to contribute to an understanding of: (1) transition activities in ECE programs and kindergarten classes; (2) how transition activities combine with child, family, ECE program and school characteristics to produce transition and school readiness outcomes; and (3) how transition activities and outcomes differ for subgroups of children.
