Caring for infants and toddlers is different than a program for preschool aged children. Infants and toddlers are learning the basic skills of living such as how to get food when you want it, how to sit up, how to learn from watching others, and how to walk and talk. These skills require encouragement and opportunity rather than the teaching of skills. Preschool children require more direct, purposeful teaching. They must learn school skills such as sitting still, paying attention, being quiet when needed, working on art projects, and how to work with others. The aim is different and therefore, the ways to help the children learn what is needed are different.
