me and you

Even the youngest babies are beginning to develop trusting relationships and enjoy diverse experiences that shape their developing perceptions, values and concepts of self. To develop emotional skills, teachers help infants build trust and attachment by responding to their needs with affection and respect. Infants develop early friendships by playing near their friends in the toy area. By responding immediately to children’s needs, providing encouragement and attention, and showing affection with hugs and snuggles, our infant teachers help babies develop a strong sense of self, build trusting relationships with caregivers and friends, and begin to develop empathy.
