External Transition Series (part 1 of 3)

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. The first part of the three part course series will review research on the effects of children moving from one child care setting to another and show how staying in the same child care with the same caregivers can help children develop socially, emotionally and physically.
