Terri Sherrill |
Planning for Toddler Transitions

When do toddlers transition to the primary program?

How do we know they are ready? Are primary teachers ready to receive our youngest students? How do we, as school leaders budget for classrooms if we need to leave openings in the primary classes? Well…so many questions deserve some thoughtful responses and discussions!
