This study is vital due to the need for trauma-informed practices to be incorporated holistically into early childhood education settings. Children who have experienced trauma frequently have behavioral, social emotional, and academic challenges. Providing trauma-informed practices within early childhood education would allow students who have experienced trauma to receive the support they need to benefit from the education system. This study examines the impact of childhood trauma on social emotional learning experiences and academic outcomes. This study further examines those trauma-informed practices being used in early childhood settings as well as their impact in mitigating retraumatization of young children. The results of this study will help early childhood educators create and apply appropriate learning environments designed to resist retraumatization for children who have experienced trauma so they can make academic and social emotional gains.
