Transition Time: Drop-off
Help children prepare for drop-off transitions with this audio-only moment!
To help ease children into their drop-off routine, play this short audio moment with Big Bird singing a song to remind children that they are safe and cared for. You might also consider sharing this audio moment with parents and other caregivers to play for children when leading up to drop-off. They might be hearing it twice in one day (or more, if they want), and that’s okay! Repetition is great for children’s learning.
