Course Summary

A child experiences many transitions while in child care—Not just moving from one activity to another, but also moving into and out of groups and programs. This course looks at the different transitions a child may experience, such as enrolling in a new child care program, moving to a new room in an existing child care program, or leaving a program. Learn how practitioners can support children during these transitions.
