Working with mixed-age groups does not necessarily mean additional work, but rather a shift in thinking or a change in approach.

Providing mixed-age groups can:

Increase the opportunity to build secure, attached relationships as well as support children’s social and emotional development Provide ample time for caregivers to learn about the individual needs of the child and to develop positive working partnerships with families Reduce the number of transitions for infants, families, and caregivers Allow siblings and peer groups to remain together over time in a familiar setting We will have an ACTIVE discussion that will cover routines care for all ages, protected spaces for skill building, gross motor elements and ways to provide social and emotions support daily.
