Event description

Description

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
