Young children thrive when they have strong attachments to their caregivers. You can create these bonds by keeping children and their primary caregiver together for as long as possible, ideally from enrollment to preschool. This model is called continuity of care. Although primarily for center based providers, this training offers information about the benefits of using a primary caregiving model everyone can share with families. You will hear what we mean by the term continuity of care and see some ways to implement it. Guests will also discuss hurdles you may see to the continuity of care model and offer useful tips for ways you can try to overcome them.
