Description

Secure relationships with early childhood educators help children settle into group settings and socialise with peers. Children’s security grows when educators can respond to their individual needs while being sensitive to the wider group of children who are with them. This Research in Practice Series book presents group-based morning transitions that provide everyday opportunities for educators to help children, families and peers feel safe and secure.

This book describes how educators can:

  • find their stillness to welcome each family and remain close to children who are already with them
  • use relational language to speak to a child’s feelings while keeping the rest of the children informed and included
  • support children to land and settle with them and set the scene for their predictable entry into peer play
  • engage in a handover of care between educators to build group solidarity.

High-quality early childhood education and care depends on secure relationships, through which educators connect deeply with children, encourage and support their connections with other children, and develop trusting partnerships with families and with each other. This book enables educators to be more inclusive in how they manage morning transitions and set the tone for the rest of the day.
