What does the word “curriculum” mean to you? If teaching skills and planning projects are the first ideas that come to mind, then this workshop will open your eyes to a new way of thinking about 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 gain an understanding of why routines are essential to “curriculum” for infants and toddlers. Participants will learn how responsive and respectful one-on-one caregiving routines are opportunities for building relationships and learning, and how these routines are connected to culture and family values. This training provides information that supports the ITERS-R subscales: Personal Care Routines, Listening and Talking, Interactions and Program Structure.
