Exclusionary discipline practices such as suspension and expulsion are increasing in preschools across the country. This practice is so widespread that an estimated 250 children, between the ages of two and five, are suspended from school each day. The most vulnerable groups for school suspensions and expulsions are Black children, boys, and students with disabilities. The Cradle-to-Prison Pipeline extends the School-to-prison pipeline to consider exclusionary discipline practice in Preschool and the lasting impact this has on young children. All children deserve fair and equitable access to high quality early childhood education. This innovative presentation incorporates restorative justice alongside developmentally appropriate practice to support the early learning community in creating environments where every child has the opportunity to thrive.
