Intended for use in conjunction with videos illustrating key concepts and caregiving techniques, this guide focuses on how the daily routines of caring for infants and toddlers can become opportunities for promoting the child's learning and development and for deepening the relationship between child and caregiver. Special attention is given to such topics as parents' concerns, the need for consistency between home and child care, and cultural diversity in child care programs. The guide is divided into sections on separate caregiving routines, with practical advice on how to conduct them. Each section deals with the young infant (birth to 9 months), the mobile infant (6 to 18 months), and the toddler (16 to 36 months). Sections concern: (1) greetings and departures; (2) feeding; (3) diapering and toileting; (4) dressing and bathing; (5) sleeping and naptime; (6) preparing, ordering, and maintaining the environment; (7) health and safety; (8) recordkeeping; and (9) special issues with children and families. Each section includes lists of points for caregivers to consider and suggested resources. A summary of questions about caregiving routines and an appendix of related materials conclude the document.
