CLASS with Infants: How to Facilitate Exploration
About the Event
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or need assistance.
Since infants learn when adults are physically and verbally involved in their experiences, it is important for teachers to actively guide infants’ explorations. During this training, we will discuss how to provide intentional support to facilitate infants’ engagement and development. We will also discuss how educators can facilitate experiences for infants through active involvement and interactions during play and routine care.
By the end of this training, participants will:
1. Recognize the importance of Facilitating Children’s Exploration in the infant classroom
2. Describe how to facilitate exploration by Being Actively Involved with infants and taking part in their play and routines
3. Describe how to facilitate exploration by following Infant-Focused behavior in the classroom
4. Recall Strategies for Facilitated Exploration in the Infant Classroom
