What is a gentle separation program?

The gentle separation program is the process of achieving independent learning. While all parties (teachers and parents/caregivers) must share the goal of helping the child achieve independent learning, the parent/caregiver may stay with the child for as long as necessary. The parent plays a passive role in the learning environment and interacts with the child minimally, allowing the teachers to engage the child in class activities and to begin to create a student-teacher bond.
