  1. In this week’s Module, I learned about multi-age classrooms. They are very helpful not only for infants and families but also for teachers. Infants are able to develop greater empathy and social understanding through their peer relationships. Children will gain more empathy along with that develop security. Because they can stay in the same setting with the same teachers for up to three years, children also have the opportunity to form secure attachments. It would also foster continuity which helps infants with their self-regulation. Teachers would build stronger family relationships caregivers would be able to understand the family better. I think this is one of the best things I used to work in a multi-age environment and although it can be a little challenging because of the age differences is also for me one of the greatest classrooms environment. We are always learning and by watching others we learn it applies to infants watching older children would help them try new things and learn behaviors. This would help me because during these years of working with children for me it is important that they learn and grow in an environment where they feel safe and are not afraid to learn and most important where they feel secure and cared for.

  2. In this weeks module I learned what multiage is and how it can really benefit the children and those around us. They have found that children in multiage groups have better cognitive and social growth, improved academic achievement, and enhances self-concepts, and more verbal communications. Children also learn to empathize and form safe/ healthy attachments. Also learned how important COC continuity of care and is strongly recommended in infant and toddler care education. Some of the benefits of COC are it deepens teacher knowledge of individual knowledge, makes children development smoother, decreases stress, and empowers families.

  3. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your
    blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    one or two images. Maybe you could space it
    out better?
