In partnership with First 5 Sacramento, earlier this year ASR analyzed the impact of transition summer camps on school readiness outcomes and found several key takeaways including that camps are serving those children with greater readiness needs than peers and that caregivers exposed to the program showed greater engagement levels in kindergarten preparation activities such as attending a parent orientation.
ASR attended and presented, along with local First 5 experts, at First 5 California's 2018 Child Health, Education, and Care Summit from April 10-12, 2018 in Los Angeles. Read summaries of the topics covered and check out the PowerPoint presentations >>
