Promoting Quality

Transitions Committee

A project to increase parent and provider understanding of transition processes, strengthen collaboration among early childhood care and education (ECCC) providers and public schools, build knowledge among professionals in ECCE and schools, and align standards and curricula. A cross-cutting group of Nebraska leaders will meet, supported by Nebraska Department of Education and the Buffett Early Childhood Institute resource specialists, to create alignment and coherence in state-level systems and resources for PreK through early grades.


The Transitions Toolkit

The Nebraska Transition to Kindergarten Toolkit and Resource Guide is for families, school district leadership and kindergarten teachers, and early childhood care and education (ECCE) providers and administrator and provides research-based activities, strategies, and resources for families, schools, and ECCE providers. The toolkit presents a common understanding of developmentally appropriate expectations and practices to support transition into kindergarten for young children.

To access the Toolkit, please visit the Nebraska Department of Education's Transition Toolkit webpage.
