Interpreter Language(s):
Unlike other child care settings, family child care homes and some center-based care settings integrate children of different ages. These settings provide children a greater opportunity for a variety of friendships and relationships than they could have in a group of same age children. Mixed age range settings provide opportunities for children to observe, imitate, and initiate a wide range of skills that are founded on developmentally appropriate practice. Participants will engage in:
? identification of 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 and all children to learn and grow
? strategies to benefit mixed age children in one group setting
