Problem. Many young children under 5 years old spend a significant part of their days in early childhood settings which provide them access to environments and activities that foster their learning. Unfortunate- ly, in many of these early childhood settings, young children are expelled and suspended at a rate that is three times the rate of students in a K-12 setting leading to detrimental, long-term outcomes for young children, families, and the community. Purpose. This paper gives an overview of exclusionary practices in early childhood, discusses causes and consequences of these practices, and provides recommendations to eliminate exclusionary practices in Nevada. Recommendations. To reduce exclusionary practices, it is recommended to embed preventive practices into early childhood state requirements; develop data sys- tems to better understand and track practices; deliver high quality professional development and technical assistance; use developmental screening and referrals for young children in need; and increasing family engagement.
