The Infant Classroom
Young children thrive on repetition. They love to look at the same books, sing the same songs and play the same games over and over again. Repeating these experiences is critical for infants and toddlers to develop language skills and a sense of security. Introduce new material slowly and balance it with familiar objects.
Environments for infants/toddlers need to be a mix of novel materials and activities for exploration and stimulation as well as familiar and predictable materials and activities for comfort and security. Very young infants, who are not yet mobile, rely on the educator to bring items to them. As infants become mobile, the educator can intentionally place materials nearby to encourage them to move to interact with the materials.
