Everyday Goodbyes: Starting School and Early Care: A Guide to the Separation Process Paperback - 2005

by Nancy Balaban; Leslie R. Williams (Editor)

In this follow-up to her "Starting School: From Separation to Independence," Balaban once again addresses this critical aspect of child development. Emphasizing the need for parents and teachers to work together in phasing children into a child care, preschool, or kindergarten program, she offers many sensitive, practical suggestions to ease the separation process for all involved.


From the publisher

Separation often evokes feelings of fear and anxiety in all of us--children, parents, and teachers alike. Because the success or failure of early separation experiences can affect a child's movement toward independence, teachers and parents must know how to help young children cope with the unpleasant feelings sometimes associated with separation.

In Everyday Goodbyes (her follow-up to Starting School: From Separation to Independence), Nancy Balaban once again addresses this critical aspect of child development. Emphasizing the need for parents and teachers to work together in phasing children into a child-care, preschool, or kindergarten program, she offers many sensitive, practical suggestions to ease the separation process for all involved.

Positioning separation as the underlying curriculum for all early childhood programs, this wonderful book:

  • Helps teachers and parents to understand why children take time to adjust.
  • Uses photographs and real-life anecdotes of children, teachers, and parents to illustrate all aspects of the adjustment process.
  • Includes activities for the classroom that support children's movement toward independence and self-confidence.
  • Includes children with special needs, those who come from special circumstances, as well as the range of cultural differences.
  • Provides sample "phase-in" schedules for planning the first days of a program, a sample letter of introduction that can be sent to parents, and a list of books for children, adults, and professionals.
