Kindergarten Transitions

As part of an Early Childhood Collaborative initiative, we have been trying to improve transitions to kindergarten. One obstacle we have faced is getting parents to register on time. We created a Kindergarten Readiness Fair and reached out to area childcare facilities to try to identify incoming students. The hardest group to reach is our ELL families. The predominate language spoken is Spanish. We have translated our fliers, had bi-lingual teachers at events, and reached out to the local support program. Are there any strategies other districts have tried and found successful?
