Caring for infants requires individualized routines and schedules based upon the needs of each child. Typically, the younger the child, the more flexible the schedule must be. Caregivers must also be responsive to the child’s biological rhythms and interest.
Below are examples of the routines and experiences an infant or toddler might experience throughout the day.
Hellos and good-byes
Diapering and toileting
Eating and mealtime
Sleeping and nap time
Playing with toys
Imitating and pretending
Enjoying stories and books
Enjoying music and movement
Enjoying and exploring the outdoors
Characteristics of an appropriate schedule may include:
A schedule that is flexible and adaptable and is changed to meet the individual needs of the child
A schedule that is unhurried, allowing the child to enjoy daily routine experiences
A schedule allowing sufficient time for routines, play and transitions.
A schedule that balances active and quiet times
A schedule allowing children to play alone, with supervision
A schedule that allow children to experience small group of 2-3 children
A schedule allowing children in full day programs to go outside twice a day.
Times shown are Pacific Standard Time. If you are in Central or Eastern Time, you will need to adjust the time accordingly.
