External Transition 103: Suspension & Expulsion – Prevention, Intervention, and Evidence-Based Practices

External transition is described as the temporary or permanent relocation of a child from one child care setting to another. External transitions may be voluntary, such as when a parent chooses to move a child to a different program because of a change of residence. These transitions may be involuntary when a child is removed from a child care setting as a result of suspension, expulsion, or the child being removed from a program because of intervention from an agency.

This 3-part course series will: 

  • Review research showing how moving from one child care setting to another child care setting has an impact on children, families, and child care providers. 
  • Review research showing how staying in the same child care setting with the same caregivers can help children develop socially, emotionally, and physically. 
  • Review research that supports making changes in the classroom and teacher actions to prevent behavioral problems. 
  • Suggest ways to work through behavior problems when they happen. 
  • Share ideas on how to create prevention and intervention plans in the classroom and throughout the entire center to lower the number of times a child moves due to behavioral problems. 
  • Review ways to support children who must move so that there are less negative impacts on children, families, and the child care provider.
