Do transitions in your early childhood setting frustrate you?

Do you see them as a waste of valuable learning time?

Since children will have to move from one place, or subject, to another, you can’t very well avoid transitions. So, why not ensure that they’re not frustrating at all? That they’re not only trouble-free but also valuable learning experiences?

You can do both, and it’s easy! In this course, I’ll show you how. So you don't have to feel like this:

Chances are, before you got into your early childhood setting, nobody taught you how to handle transitions. So, you probably tackled them in the traditional way. Which is to say: asking young children to do what they’re not developmentally ready to do! With that in mind, we'll explore:

  • the trouble with traditional transitions
  • how transitions can easily be linked to learning
  • tips for making transitions chaos-free and fun!

The sections in this one-hour course also offer lots of activity ideas you can use immediately, covering the typical transitions of

  • arrival,
  • cleanup,
  • snacks and lunch,
  • to and from outside the classroom,
  • nap or rest time, and
  • departure.

Enroll now & make your transitions trouble-free & teachable!

"I appreciated the tips for teaching songs and finger plays. It actually gave me insight into an issue I had in my volunteer teaching work at my church! ... I will recommend [the course] to my colleagues."

~ Massachusetts toddler teacher

"I have used many of the transition ideas as I take my P.E. classes outside or to the gym. The kids have loved them and I have had so much fun with new ways of moving through the school hallways!!"

~ Donna Fox
