Transitions

Transitions occur during schedule changes throughout the daily routine to allow children time to complete one event before moving to the next.  They are intended to keep children focused and engaged as they move to the next part of the daily routine. Effective transitions give children advanced notice and allow sufficient time to complete specific tasks.  They are clear, consistent and meet individual needs as children handle tasks at varying speeds and ability. They can be used as intentional teaching opportunities to teach and/or reinforce skills.
