Educa invites you to their event

Supporting Toddler Transitions From Home To Child Care, by Kay Margetts

About this event

Kay Margetts, Associate Professor in Education at the University of Melbourne, is internationally recognised for her work on transitions. She will share her research in two webinars hosted by Educa. This one focuses on the transition to child care.

As young children and their families begin the transition into child care, it is important that early childhood educators and their settings are responsive to their needs. Just how they responsive they are can have long-term consequences on the child and the relationship between child, parent, teacher and center.

This webinar will address:

  • Challenges associated with the move from home to childcare for both infants/toddlers and their families
  • Responsive practices for supporting them during this time especially through the adoption of a relationship-based approach
