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.

  1. What is primary care?
  2. Why is primary care important for infants and toddlers and their families in family child care?
  3. How do family child care providers make meaningful connections when caring for several children?
