Each year RAND hosts a conference on early childhood. This year, something quite different and exciting is brewing.
To support the ongoing work of the smC2C kindergarten Readiness Campaign, this year's RAND Community Conference will launch what will hopefully grow into an ongoing dialogue among early childhood educators and early elementary teachers about what it means for the community, the schools, and parents to be ready to support children in the transition from preschool to early elementary.
Invited attendees include early childhood providers and TK, Kindergarten, and first grade teachers. This is a first of its kind workshop in Santa Monica where local providers and teachers will have the opportunity to discuss transition from preschool and early education programs to the early elementary school years.
