ACTIVITY SESSION- WELCOMING INFANTS AND FAMILIES Participants will begin by writing down some things they do to welcome new families with infants into their child care program. They will consider resources they share with families, their discussion with families about feeding practices, their own behaviors, environment and other factors that may affect how families feel when they bring their infant into the childcare program. Then they will brainstorm some ideas on how they might add to their procedures or environment to better welcome families and their infants. Next they will write these ideas on their activity sheet.
