What does the word “curriculum” mean to you? If teaching skills and planning projects are the first ideas that come to mind, this training event will open your eyes to a new way of thinking about the infant-toddler “curriculum.” Infant and toddler teachers spend a large part of the day engaged in routine caregiving responsibilities. These are key learning times! Participants will understand why routines are essential to the “curriculum” and discover strategies to carry out daily routines that deepen the teacher-child relationship and promote infant and toddler development. This training provides information that supports the ITERS-R subscales: Personal Care Routines, Listening and Talking, Interactions, and Program Structure. (DCDEE 2,3,4,7)
