Palmetto PreschoolA 1-year-old reads to an infant at Palmetto Preschool in Myrtle Beach, S.C. Programs that incorporate the concept of continuity of care keep primary caregivers and children together throughout the three years of infancy period, or for the time during that period of the child’s enrollment in care. Discussions of continuity of care often raise the question of safety for younger children who are in the same class with older ones. As you can see, this little guy is modeling what he has experienced to his younger classmate. Continuity of care is not only beneficial for the individual child with their care teacher, but also for the development of interactions with other children.
