Abstract

Nineteen parents whose children attended three preschools and were presently attending public school were interviewed face-to-face to find out what they perceived as major issues during their child's schoo! transition. Parents expressed both concern and satisfaction regarding their child's school transition, their role as decision-makers, and the effects of the transition on their family.
