Teaching Infants to Play and Learn

Infants and Toddlers are learning how objects are used together which is why they love filling and dumping so much. During this 7minute observation what do you notice about the adult’s role in supporting the baby at play? What is the child learning?

(Of note- this is the last five minutes at the childcare center before the school closes for the day. This infant has been cared for from 8am-5pm- the last adult you see in the video his his mother)

Please observe first without distraction- we will be watching again.

Now that you’ve seen the video, please take a moment to watch again asking:

  • how is the baby
  • how does the caregiver respond to the baby
  • what motivates the child
  • what can you tell about the child’s relationships
  • what did you like about the observation
  • what would you change

Next week we will be watching this video again with Pikler Pedagogue and RIE Associate, Beverly Kovach on Facebook Live. Make sure you “like” us and stay tuned for participation details. (https://www.facebook.com/LittleLearnersLodgeSC/)
