Individualizing Routines for Infants and Toddlers


CEU CODE: 371 CEU CREDIT: 0.15 LOCATION: Promenade 201 A


For infants and toddlers in group care, daily routines such as diapering and feeding enable us to build positive relationships that promote trust and security. The more we know about each child, the more effective we can be at individualizing rou- tines to meet his or her specific needs. This session helps participants examine their own beliefs about routines, work with families to provide consistent care between home and school, observe and read children’s cues, and plan routines for each child.


Participants will…


• Recognize that one’s personal values and beliefs may need to be adapted to fit the needs of the children in a group-care setting.


• Understand how to partner with families to gather information in order to provide children with consistent care and interactions during daily routines.


• Use observations and family input to create individualized daily routines for each child.
