A Primary Caregiving System for Infants and Toddlers: Best for Everyone Involved.
Bernhardt, Jennifer L.
Young Children, v55 n2 p74-80 Mar 2000
The primary caregiving model provides for teachers to have primary daily responsibility for the same small group of toddlers or infants. The system allows for creation of strong bonds between teacher and child and provides parents with a trusted care partnership. Challenges to the system include large child-to- caregiver ratios, matching teachers to children, and a supportive staff environment. (LBT)
