Children's adjustment to kindergarten is an issue which is of concern to both educators and parents. This study explores three areas which were thought to have a relationship to children's adjustment to school: parents' attitudes toward appropriate activities for preschoolers and kindergarteners; how these attitudes compare between groups of parents based on the preschool that their children attended; and parents' perceptions of continuity between their child's preschool and kindergarten programs. Of particular interest in this study was the relationship between Westside Community School's Early Childhood programs and its kindergartens.
