Design and organisation of the transition from kindergarten to elementary school and the integration of this theme in (university degree) training in Scotland

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Two independently important but not previously juxtaposed nor jointly interrogated topics are brought together in this paper: the design and organisation of early childhood transitions between sectors, in particular from preschool to elementary education, and the integration of this theme in the training and qualifications of educators in their (University) programme of study. Key elements and drivers of transitions experience that should be included in the training of educators are identified and it is proposed that their inclusion will benefit a continuous process in young children’s education: it is shown that such integration is underway in Scottish early educators’ programmes of study.
