In a primary care system, each child is assigned to one special infant care teacher who is principally responsible for that child’s care. When children spend a longer day in care than their primary care teacher does, a second care teacher is assigned to provide the primary relationship. Each child should have a special care teacher assigned to him or her at all times during the child care day.
As you watch the video, consider...
- What is primary care?
- Why is primary care important for infants and toddlers and their families in family child care?
- How do family child care providers make meaningful connections when caring for several children?
