Program Planning for Your Multi Ages Child Care Centre
Entertaining the various ages in a family daycare can be challenging. Older children will tend to push little ones away, but the forever-curious toddler will want to be part of the group. What can we do to create a well-balanced space? Water and sand play is a perfect activity for both ages. The older children build and create whereas the younger ones are happy to fill and empty. We take our play outside most days, this is where nature’s floor can become our play materials, soup can be made from soil, leaves, and pebbles, and what child doesn’t love a stick to stir the pot?
In this workshop, we will discuss a typical day of ideas to help you navigate around the multi ages in your daycare.
