The Transitions in Early Childhood Web-site was established in 2001 following the EECERA Conference in London, August 2000.

This site provides a directory of research about the different transitions children face in their early years, including transitions:

from parental to non-parental care

from home-based care to centre-based care

within early childhood services

from home to preschool

from preschool to the first year of schooling

This information can be accessed by clicking on Countries or the icons for Researchers, Topics, Full Text Papers, etc.
