Over the course of the year, we will have nine visits from a mother and baby from our community. Miss Koryna is our Roots of Empathy instructor, and she will also come in for a pre-visit and post-visit session, where we will have the opportunity to reflect on and communicate some of our learning. We will have the chance to explore nine different themes throughout the year which will help us connect and learn from baby Claire. For example, after we have met and gotten to know the family, we will focus on Crying as well as Caring and Planning prior to the winter break.
We have already had our first visit from Miss Koryna where we made some predictions about what we think Claire will be able to do at 3 months old. Some of the things we think baby Claire will be able to do are:
- make "baby" noises
- make faces
- tell the difference between tastes
- grab things
- sit up
We are super excited to meet Claire and her mother for the first time tomorrow! We will sing her a welcome song, and hopefully start learning from her right away through guided observations and inquiry. We can't wait to share our learning with you throughout the year!
