There are many transitions that children experience before they are five, including the first major transition from home to an early years setting. Successive changes can have a serious impact on young children and stress, separation and insecure attachments can affect not only a child’s emotional health but also cognitive and intellectual development. Understanding Transitions in the Early Years explains why transitions matter and provides practical guidance on how to support young children’s developing emotional resilience and equip them to embrace change in the future. Aimed at practitioners and students, the book: draws together evidence from neuroscience, attachment theory, child development and childcare practices provides a context for practitioners to empathise with children and families as they relate to their own understanding of the impact of change and transition looks at ways to reduce the number of transitions including the key person approach offers guidance and practical strategies for practitioners, managers and head teachers for supporting children through transitions. Including case studies, examples of good practice and questions for reflection this thought-provoking text emphasises the little things that practitioners can do for the individual children in their care to help them feel secure and confident when dealing with change.

An increased emphasis on an early start in group day care and educational settings for young children means that by the time children enter statutory education, they may already have had several transitional experiences: each will have an impact. This book explores early transitions from a variety of international perspectives. Each chapter is informed by rigorous research and makes recommendations on how education professionals can better understand and support transitions in the early years. Contributors examine issues such as: Parental involvement in the transition to school Children's voices on the transition to primary school The construction of identity in the early years Readers will be able to draw support, guidance and inspiration from the different writers to scaffold their own thinking and development in relation to children's transitions. Ample opportunities are offered for readers to gain confidence and competence in dealing with the range of people involved in transitions, and to the benefit of everyone, not least the children, whose 'transitions capital' will grow. Informing Transitions in the Early Years is essential reading for early years students, practitioners, policy makers and researchers.

By combining sound theoretical underpinning with practical case studies, this book offers a critical approach to the implementation of EYFS. It takes its inspiration and examples of best practice from projects based in a range of early years settings, and considers the role of the practitioner and the holistic development of the child.

The third volume in the Transition Magician series, this book is designed to help early childhood professionals in supporting the parents of young children. The book provides activities for parents and young children for home and away from home to guide children through difficult transition times and to make the most of valuable opportunities for building skills and relationships. Chapter 1 discusses ways early childhood professionals can support parents to help their children manage transitions. The next five chapters present a collection of activities to use during everyday transition times. The activities are divided into five categories according to the type of transition in which they might be used, and children's developmental needs during transition times. The transition categories are: (1) everyday routines, such as leaving the house in the morning, picking up toys, or getting ready for bed; (2) busy time, when parents are busy with household routines and responsibilities; (3) together times, quality activities for parent and child in between the routines of the day; (4) on the move activities for travel time, both to school or child care and on longer trips; and (5) while you wait, activities while waiting at the doctor's office, laundry, or religious services. All activities are written in a reproducible form so that they may be photocopied and given to parents. The final chapter shows how early childhood programs can design and set up two workshops--one for parents only and the other for parents and children--using the transition ideas and props from this book. Three appendices include a list of eight resources, workshop activity lists, and handouts and examples. (KB)
