Here They Come – A Forum to Assist in the Transition of Young Children

The impact of the pandemic on children’s social-emotional development, self-regulation, learning experiences, and skills across all domains is like nothing we have seen! On May 24, 2022, CAS, in collaboration with the State Department of Education and the Office of Early Childhood, hosted a virtual forum during which early childhood experts, teachers, and administrators shared real-life examples and evidence-based best practices that support young children’s emotional well-being and skill development. The program provided ideas, tools, and strategies to assist in planning for the transition of young children for the 2022-23 school year. Click below to watch the webinar recording.
