Family unit plays an important role in meeting the needs of children in school, specifically preschoolers. Children move between two influential environments that build attitudes and readiness for learning: the home and the school. Starting school is an important time for young children, their families, and educators. . It has been described as "one of the major challenges children have to face in their early childhood years" (Victorian Department of School Education, 1992, p. 44), "a big step for all children and their families" (New South Wales Department of School Education, 1997, p. 8), and "a key life cycle transition both in and outside school" (Pianta & Cox, 1999, p. xvii). For this reason Home-School Collaborative Programs are very important.
