External Transition Series (part 3 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. This third installment of the course will explore the potential impact external transition may have on families and on child care centers. This module uses examples and ideas to explain how to work with children showing challenging behavior.
