Course Summary

Caregiving routines provide us with opportunities to build close, personal relationships with each of the children we care for. When carried out responsively and without haste, these routines also create learning opportunities. To support a child’s need for consistency and predictability, the routines we carry out should reflect families’ caregiving practices at home.
