This Will Be Her Last Day: Supporting Infants, Toddlers, and Their Families as They Transition Out of Child Care
Parlakian, Rebecca; Adams, Emily
Zero to Three (J), v30 n4 p17-21 Mar 2010
ZERO TO THREE's 2009 parent survey, "Parenting Infants and Toddlers Today," revealed that 25% of all parents surveyed had experienced child care-related hardships as a result of the recent economic downturn. The result is a significant number of children who are experiencing changes in their child care arrangements. Transitions into, and out of, child care are major milestones in an infant or toddler's life. In this article, the authors explore the meaning and impact of unstable child care arrangements for infants and toddlers, as well as how child care professionals can work with families to execute transitions in ways that are both positive and affirming.
