Supporting children with transitions

When something changes in a child's life, they go through a transition. To help you support them, we have tips, best practice ideas and free resources for childcare professionals on our web pages below.

Discover more about: 

  • Horizontal transitions – that take place over a day or a week, for example when a child is looked after by different people.
  • Vertical transitions – that take place over a number of years, for example, when a child first starts at an early years setting or leaves to start school.
