SFCS Workshop: Caring for Children in Mixed Age Groups, April 17th 2021


Caring for Children in Mixed Age Groups
 
by Solano Family & Children's Services

Come and learn useful strategies to benefit mixed-age children in a group setting


About this Event

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


Date And Time: Saturday, April 17, 2021 -  9:00 AM – 12:30 PM
