15 days to smooth, easy
classroom transitions
What's the hardest part of your day?
Divider Text
Chances are, it's one (or all!) of your transitions.

Transitions - times that children are moving from one activity or space to another - are often chaotic and exhausting, even for very skilled teachers.
It doesn't have to be that way!

In 15 short lessons, Transition Bootcamp will give you all the tools and strategies you need to:
Prevent challenging behavior during transitions
Make transitions much easier
for teachers and children
Shorten transitions to maximize learning time
Can you commit to spending a few minutes a day for a few weeks,
if the payoff is a smoother, easier workday, every day?

I loved the format. Applying the knowledge was way more meaningful than just passively learning.
Teachers can pace the learning to fit their schedule, the cost is more than reasonable, the lessons can be completed within the day and responsibilities you already have. Every teacher should take this course!!

Because I could do this for my entire staff (affordability!) we could acquire the information at our own pace yet still have others to bounce around ideas and plans...a great recipe for small centers to gain important information and skills without depleting the budget
The course was perfect to allow my team to complete at their own pace (with some guidelines from me to allow discussions at staff meetings). The price can't be beat and the resources were valuable.
It was interesting to realize how many transitions were a part of our day even after a revamp a few years back to decrease some transitions. Doing this bootcamp alongside my staff has been an amazing and fruitful endeavor.
I think it should be encouraged/required for co-teachers to take together! We really enjoyed taking the course together as a team and we see how much of a difference it has been for us because of putting our brains together.
Frequently Asked Questions

Who is this course for?
Teachers! Actually, anyone involved in planning/leading classroom transitions (paras, EAs, assistant teachers, special service providers, etc..) We focus on preschool, but the principles and lessons apply to early elementary classrooms, and to toddler transitions as well.
When does it start and finish?
Whenever you like! There are 15 lessons, and you can choose to do them in a true bootcamp format, with one lesson and assignment per day, or you can slow down and spread the lessons out over a longer period of time.
Can I get professional development credit for this course?
When you have completed all of the lessons, including each daily assignment, you will receive a certificate for 4 hours of professional development. If you need us to work with you to make sure that the course is eligible for credit from your state or organization, we're happy to do that.
What is the time commitment?
Expect to spend about 10-20 minutes on each lesson. Some lessons also include optional reading or other resources, which you may choose to spend more time with.
Do I need to set aside a specific time of day for the course?
Some people find that it is easier to set aside a specific time for working on the lessons, but you can work on the course at any time that is convenient for you.
How long do I have access?
After enrolling, you have unlimited access to the content for as long as you like.
I was impressed with the depth of this course. I usually feel face to face trainings work best for my learning style - but this was effective.
The information was amazing and it was broken down into easy steps to really relate and make it useful. The course website was also really easy to navigate and understand.
I have really loved this course. I am making more effort to use positive feedback during clean up time. Before I was doing it at other times, but not during transitions. Now I'm doing it all the time and it's working.
Participants will:

  • Collect information about the current state of transitions in their classrooms
  • Summarize new research on transitions in the early childhood day
  • Learn evidence-based practices related to smooth transitions
  • Plan for transitions using evidence-based practices
  • Put those practices into action for at least one daily transition
I learned so many things! I realized just how much time is spent daily in transitions in my classroom and how to decrease that time. I also learned how to enhance that time and use it as a learning time and how to incorporate games within that time frame.
