Transition is designed for those children with birthdays between January and June who just miss our nursery school cut-off. Not everyone will participate in this program. The Transition program is a bridge between the Parent and Me Program and the regular Nursery School Program. In the beginning, child and parent (or grandparent or caregiver) will attend Transition together, gradually working toward successful separation. The class will meet two times per week and will provide the opportunity for children to begin relating to their teachers in a group situation. The daily schedule is planned to provide a balance of indoor/outdoor, quiet/active, individual/group, large muscle/small muscle and child initiated/staff initiated activities.
