The results of the research demonstrate that preschool and school educators do communicate across settings for a range of reasons and that their motives impact on the nature of that communication. There are many factors relating to individual educators and wider contexts which influence intersetting communication, including educatorÃ¢Â's beliefs about children, the type of setting in which they work, and the channels through which communication is enacted. The outcomes of communication are complex, wide-ranging and multi-faceted and they relate to educators, children and families. The research results have contributed to the development of an Enhanced model of preschool-school communication.
