Summary:
"This book will draw upon the findings of empirical research, which explored parents', ECEC practitioners' and teachers' beliefs about the nature of children's school readiness and the relationships between them as they prepared and supported children during the transition to school. During the phase of adjustment, children are making sense of their role as a pupil and the differences and discontinuities they encounter in the new context. Unlike many current texts, this book will extend the transition to include the phases of preparation and adjustment and it will explore parents', ECEC practitioners' and teachers' relationships throughout these phases of the transition"-- Provided by publisher.
