Immer wieder finden im Krippenalltag kleine Übergänge, sogenannte Mikrotransitionen statt. Der Wechsel eines Raums, einer Spielsituation oder der ganzen Kindergruppe in ein neues Alltagssetting (Essen, Schlafen, Toilette) sind häufig die schwierigsten Zeiten und eine Herausforderung für die gesamte Gruppe. Besonders bei kleinen Kindern kann entstehende Hektik und mangelnd strukturierte Übergangssituationen zum Verlust der emotionalen Selbstregulation führen, was die Umsetzung einer stressreduzierenden Pädagogik erfordert. Welche Strategien gibt es, um im Krippenalltag auch in solchen Situationen ruhig zu bleiben? Das Buch bietet zahlreiche praktische Umsetzungsideen, um den Ablauf der Alltagsroutinen stressfreier zu gestalten. Die klare Kennzeichnung von Übergängen sowie Rituale für Kind und Fachkraft helfen, die Mikrotransitionen in der Krippe achtsam und harmonisch zu gestalten.

Perspectives on Transitions in Schooling and Instructional Practice examines student transitions between major levels of schooling, teacher transitions in instructional practice, and the intersection of these two significant themes in education research. Twenty-six leading international experts offer meaningful insights on current pedagogical practices, obstacles to effective transitions, and proven strategies for stakeholders involved in supporting students in transition. The book is divided into four sections, representing the four main transitions in formal schooling: Early Years (Home, Pre-school, and Kindergarten) to Early Elementary (Grades 1–3); Early Elementary to Late Elementary (Grades 4–8); Late Elementary to Secondary (Grades 9–12); and Secondary to Post-Secondary (College and University). A coda draws together over-arching themes from throughout the text to provide recommendations and a visual model that captures their interactions. Combining theoretical approaches with practical examples of school-based initiatives, this book will appeal to those involved in supporting either the student experience (both academically and emotionally) or teacher professional learning and growth.
