Alta Head Start Can Help Get Your Kids Ready for Kindergarten

Alta Head Start provides children with opportunities to learn in group settings, ensuring that they’ll be socially and emotionally ready for kindergarten.

Among the specific activities that help prepare both children and their families for the transition to kindergarten are:

  • Field trips to local kindergarten classrooms
  • A Kindergarten Transition Event that provides families with local kindergarten registration information
  • Quarterly transition materials that are shared with families

In 2015-16, 407 children transitioned from Alta Head Start into kindergarten at the end of the school year.
