Milwaukee Coalition for Children’s Mental Health
4C For Children is happy to partner with the Milwaukee Coalition for Children’s Mental Health – CCMH – to provide resources for supporting our children and child care programs and teachers. CCMH is identifying one key experience that has negative effects on a child’s social and emotional development and emphasizing ways that can be prevented. That is the experience of being excluded from the early childhood classroom; specifically, the experience of expulsion. Studies have found that children are expelled from early learning programs at three times the rate of children in elementary through high school, combined. CCMH has put together tip sheets on this topic. The tip sheets provide information on the effects of early childhood expulsion, and steps you can take to support the child and their family. Click here to find them.
Please copy and share the tip sheets with co-workers, parents, and anyone who has influence on the development of a young child. More information can be found on the CCMH website: https://www.mkekids.org/
