Together in Care: Meeting the Intimacy Needs of Infants and Toddlers in Groups

View Video Clip
During infancy children need deep connections with each person who cares for them, whether those persons are family members or caregivers. All the learning and loving that follows in children's lives builds on those early attachments with special people. This video presents three child care program policies that will lead to this special kind of care: primary caregiver assignments, use of small groups, and continuity of care. Recommendations are presented on how to organize primary caregiving most effectively, optimal group sizes and ratios for different settings and age groups, and how to ensure continuity of care.

Also included with this DVD is a DVD Booklet.
