CANCELLED: Child Care at Its Best – Caring for Mixed Age Children

May 16, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 2:30 pm


Presented by Child Care at Its Best

Unlike many childcare settings, family childcare homes and some center-based care settings integrate children of different ages. This interaction results in greater opportunities for children to form friendships and relationships than they could have in a group of same-age children. Mixed-age settings provide children with opportunities to observe, emulate and initiate skills and behaviors that can be monitored in a safe and developmentally appropriate manner.
Participants will engage in:

  • The role of the adult as a careful planner
  • Theoretical frameworks that support the importance of play
  • Setting up a safe place for all ages to learn and grow
  • Strategies to benefit mixed age children in a group setting
