1 WestEd.org Infant & Toddler Group Care Caregiving Routines as Curriculum

2 WestEd.org Learning Objectives Participants will be able to: Explain how caregiving routines such as feeding, diapering and napping are important opportunities to form close, caring relationships with each infant. Demonstrate how routines are learning opportunities for the child, and as such, should be carried out at the child’s pace, allowing the child to participate fully and make choices. Employ caregiving strategies that are consistent with the caregiving techniques that the family uses at home.

3 WestEd.org Caregiving Routines Are the Heart of Quality Care Care teachers need to use feeding, napping, diapering, and toilet routines as opportunities to build close, caring relationships with each child. If routines are done with sensitivity, the care teacher can satisfy the baby’s need for attention, tactile stimulation, interactions, and attachment.

4 WestEd.org Activity: Jigsaw Reading Look at the handout: Introduction to A Guide to Routines (Second Edition). Read your assigned section and identify key concepts in your section. Share with the group the key concepts/highlights of your section.

5 WestEd.org Dyad discussion: Why are routines important? How do they impact the children?

6 WestEd.org The Impact of Routines Routines provide an opportunity to build a relationship with each child. If carried out in a manner consistent with how routines are done at home, these routines build a bridge between home care and center/family child care. How routines are approached helps set the emotional tone of the program.

7 WestEd.org The Impact of Routines (cont’d) If routines are done in a consistent manner, they establish predictability and give the children a sense of control by letting them know what comes next. All routines need to be done with consideration to health and safety issues for children and adults. Routines provide opportunities for the adults to enhance the infants’ development in all domains.
