Strategies for resettling a child after an absence
Date: 1st December 2021
Duration: Approx. 25 min
Resettling a child back into your early childhood service after an absence can be a challenging, emotional time for everyone involved. Especially if the child is struggling with this. As early childhood teachers we all want the best for the children in our care, but sometimes we just need some support ourselves to achieve this.
In this lunch bite episode I answer a letter from a teacher who is seeking strategies as a primary caregiver for how to support a child who is struggling to resettle after a long absence.
I share my response, offering 11 suggestions for how this teacher can respond respectfully, and support this child and her family to resettle and find her equilibrium again.
This is one of our lunch bite podcasts, where we bring you new ECE learning, guidance and support in less than 15 minutes (although this session is a sneaky 25 minutes).
