Integrating Promising Practices to Support Early Literacy and Successful Transitions PreK-K

These virtual sessions span two half days and are intended to help preschool and public school educators as they plan ways to support the transitional changes children and families face when moving from Pre-K to kindergarten.

Targeted audience includes early learning coalition and school district staff, public school educators and administrators, public and private preschool teachers and administrators and state and local educational partners.

The Florida Office of Early Learning (OEL) began the Transition to Kindergarten (T2K) initiative in 2017 by providing extensive planning and collaborative opportunities between coalitions and school district staff. The goal and purpose of these collaborative efforts has been to support preschool and public school educators as they plan ways to support the transitional changes children and families face when moving from the preschool to kindergarten settings. Using a four-pillar approach of Ready Child, Ready Family, Ready School, Ready Community, early childhood educators are better able to support this transition and increase children’s early school success.
