    Maureen Wikane & Arlene Notel attend Kindergarten Transition Forum

    Director Maureen Wikane and Pre-K Teacher, Arlene Notel attended the Kindergarten Transition Forum at Western Suffolk BOCES on January 12, 2016, where they participated in a panel on how to successfully transition children from Pre-K to Kindergarten

    The Kindergarten Transition Forum has been pioneered by Head Start and designed to assist communities in developing a Kindergarten transition plan for their preschoolers. In collaboration with the State Education Department, a transition toolkit has been developed and best practices have been disseminated over the past six years in New York State.

    The forum is sponsored by the Long Island Pre-K Initiative, a grant-funded project that seeks to share information about research, policy, and best practices for early learning. Administered by Nassau BOCES, it is supported with expertise from the Early Years Institute and funds from the Rauch and Hagedorn Foundations. Its partners are Eastern and Western Suffolk BOCES and the Child Care Councils of Nassau and Suffolk County.

    Maureen and Arlene participated on the panel along with Christine Beatty, Assistant Director at the Children’s Community Head Start and Early Head Start.
