Product Description

Review

This clearly set out and well-illustrated book aimed particularly at the crucial transitions between the wide range of early years settings onwards into reception and Key Stage One is long overdue. The central focus is all types of change for young children and the adults who work with them including teachers, classroom staff plus welfare staff, volunteers and administrators … The helpful inclusion of a practical audit to review thinking about transition for young children in order to establish an improvement plan to ensure excellent practice and an enabling environments checklist for adults to audit their enabling environment for children are really constructive … This is a good value practical book for of thought provoking guidance which can be used by a variety of adults working within the early years. A good investment! --Kathryn Solly, Headteacher, Chelsea Open Air Nursery School and Childrens Centre

For anyone who works with children in the early years, this book is a must read ... The book is separated into clear sections detailing the background behind research into positive transitions, examples from different types of settings and how to practically apply this to your own setting ... The author gives helpful information and advice on how to write a transition policy, how to audit the way you interact with children and parents to implement positive transitions and also examples of forms to successfully share information with parents to benefit children s transitions. In the current changing times of the EYFS review, transitions will always be something children need support with so the content will remain appropriate regardless of the government s changes to the early years framework. --Beth Thomas, Accredited Childminder, Happy Days Childcare.

A fantastic resource for the new unit - Preparing for school readiness. This book provides theories and guidance around supporting children through transitions. An essential book for those teaching and on the early years educator qualification. --Lorna Morgan, Highlands College, Jersey.

Format: Paperback
For anyone who works with children in the early years, this book is a must read. Essentially all children go through a transition when they start any new setting - although the word `transition' is defined by the author, Sue Allingham, as `any kind of change that may alter the routines that the children, and sometimes the adults, are used to.'
The book is separated into clear sections detailing the background behind research into positive transitions, examples from different types of settings and how to practically apply this to your own setting. The case studies are very informative as they cover each type of setting a child may encounter in their early years therefore it is an appropriate read for any practitioner. The author gives helpful information and advice on how to write a transition policy, how to audit the way you interact with children and parents to implement positive transitions and also examples of forms to successfully share information with parents to benefit children's transitions.
In the current changing times of the EYFS review, transitions will always be something children need support with so the content will remain appropriate regardless of the government's changes to the early years framework.

Transitions in The Early Years by Sue Allingham

This book is pitched as a practical guide to supporting transitions between early years settings and into key stage one.

The author has taken into consideration the Welsh, Scottish, Northern Ireland and English curricula. This was interesting reading in itself. The beauty of this book is that it incorporates many different situations which can change a child's routine e.g. a visitor coming to a setting or a change of staff.

The book is a useful tool for any early years practitioner as it enables one to reflect on the quality of care within a setting. Key elements are broken down into bullet points followed by a statement or question to keep in mind as each chapter unfolds and links in to policies and documents. These in turn make good discussion points for key meetings or for anyone working in a home-based setting to help them reflect on their practice.

One chapter that particularly held my attention was "Things to Think About and Do". It includes examples of a registration form, a "me and my family" form, enabling environments check list and an audit form to support a review of thinking.

I found the case studies refreshing as they were informative and covered problems and covered issues that arise within settings and how practitioners can work to resolve them.

This book has enabled me to look more deeply into the meaning of transitions and unpick the subject matter more thoroughly than I could ever have imagined.

Format: Paperback
University requirement for Early Childhood Studies course, leading to teaching qualification. Daughter used this and 100 other books throughout the course and now is a primary school teacher dealing with special needs kids, so it must have some answers.
