Is your infant or toddler classroom structured specifically for that age group, or is it more like a watered-down version of the preschool classrooms in your program? Programming specifically for children from birth to 36 months of age is vital. Infant and toddler child care has grown exponentially in the last 20 years. Research increasingly stresses the impact of quality on children and their families. However, many infant and toddler teachers (and directors) approach this age group from a preschool background and perspective. This provides a challenge for programs to support the development of effective teachers who are able to provide for the unique needs, interests, and abilities of infants and toddlers. This workshop will address the similarities and differences between infant-toddler classrooms and preschool classrooms and provide a fresh perspective to arranging your infant-toddler classroom to target the uniqueness of this age group.
