For many teachers, transitions are the hardest parts of the day. Researchers estimate that young children spend up to 30 percent of their day transitioning: arrival, departure, getting ready for meals, and moving between areas or activities. Children’s challenging behavior may be related to how staff members plan, schedule, and implement transitions. Predictable, structured routines are critical for helping children feel secure, and for helping teachers maximize learning.
