The transition from preschool to kindergarten is one of the most difficult, critical, and yet exciting events in a young child’s life.
Providing a smooth transition for a preschooler from the home and/or preschool environment to the elementary school can make a significant difference in how well the child adjusts to a formal setting.
The LBECE Committee aims to facilitate this transition process by providing families with the information and resources they need to support the health, safety, socio-emotional, and educational well-being of their child.
Purpose of Kindergarten Festivals
