The transition of children from pre-school to primary school has long been received considerable attention from the educators. Transition from preschool to Std.-I involves many types of adjustments and a more formalized curriculum in a more structured day than the children experienced in pre-school where they have had play based learning. Though children have a great capacity to adjust and most transitions made are successful but for quite a few of them it is not. The paper reports on the data obtained from interviews of 30 teachers of 10 different schools which were selected at random in the city of Bhubaneswar, India and 4 parents from each school which gave a sample of 40 parents. A noteworthy finding of this study was that teachers did have proper professional training but even the trained teachers were not aware of the developmental needs of the children. The study carries implication for the parents, teachers and school administrators to overcome the problems faced by children during transition.
