Partnering for a successfull preschool transition requires the implementation of concerted actions, through a coordination that fosters reflection, and by the engagement of various multisector partners, within a positive climate.

Knowledge of and a clear definition of each person’s role, active listening and valuing the skills of each partner are essential elements to foster the progress of the various projects. Early involvement of partners is also desirable.

The definition of a common vision that places the child and his or her family at the centre of the intentions is also essential. It helps target concrete objectives that drive collaboration between partners, the implementation of effective transition practices and the planning of the evaluation of these practices.

Knowledge of and a clear definition of stakeholders’ roles

The knowledge and a clear definition of each stakeholder’s role makes it possible to specify everyone’s contribution and thus develop an effective partnership.

Knowledge of the common vision

Knowledge of common targeted goals that foster the sharing of a common vision for a positive transition to preschool and a sense of belonging are essential to partnership development.

Active listening

Active listening allows for discussion, dialogue, communication, and questioning. This knowledge is essential to all forms of collaboration.

Positive climate

Several skills are required by partners to create a positive climate.

Among other things, we underscore the importance of interpersonal skills, a sense of responsibility, adaptability, the ability to work in a team and integrity.

Furthermore, the importance of leadership is emphasized in order to create and maintain a positive climate between the partners, thus promoting a quality transition.

Valuing

Valuing each partner is an important soft skill so that each person finds their place and sees the impact of their contribution. Each person’s expertise must be recognized in order to maintain a positive and effective collaboration.

Engagement and a common vision

Sharing a common vision requires significant openness.

Each person’s engagement is essential in order to be able to promote and implement concerted actions.

This will help us to amass the impacts and to ensure that the child and his or her family feel that they are at the centre of this first transition.

Coordination

The know-how to achieve effective coordination requires communication, planning and organizational skills for the various transition activities.

Common vision
Concerted actions
Engagement of multisector partners
Collaboration

A common vision fosters the implementation of concerted actions between the various multisector partners and can allow for the creation of collaborative teams between the various actors and partners to achieve a successful transition.

Early involvement of partners

Early involvement requires planning, leadership and organizational skills in order to foresee the time frames and structure necessary for the early involvement of partners.

This early involvement as well as the consistent presence of the partners fosters the sustainability of the various transition projects.

Evaluation of transition practices

An evaluation of each practice is necessary within the action cycle to allow for self-regulation by the team.

This know-how always aims to better meet the needs of children and their families, by measuring the impact of the actions and processes undertaken.
