Episode 10: Supporting Big Changes with Richard Knight & Julie Pearson

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Alistair Bryce-Clegg is joined once again by Julie Pearson and Richard Knight from the Early Years Alliance. In this episode, they cover some of the bigger changes children tend to experience, and what practitioners can do to support them through these.  

Practical tips for practitioners

They emphasise the importance of making transitions exciting, whether that’s through using the right language, or making a new space as unthreatening and attractive as you can. They discuss using transitional objects to help too, such as a cuddly toy, and using digital recordings and visuals so a child knows what to expect.
