Working with Mixed Age Groups
Teaching children in mixed-age groups sounds like a daunting task for educators, but it really isn't! According to Head Start, also known as the Early Childhood Knowledge & Learning Center, children who learn in mixed-age group settings reap benefits such as:
Teaching mixed-age groups allow teachers to take on a different perspective when planning instruction. Oftentimes it is not unlike planning differentiated instruction in a single classroom. Caregiver-child relationships are strengthened in mixed-age group instruction because children stay with one caregiver for more than the usual year, giving time for caregiver and child to deepen their attachment.
H&H Child Care Training offers Working with Mixed Age Groups as an online, self-paced course: this means that students who take this course can do it on their own schedule, and at their own time--there is no need to adhere to a date and time! Our online platform also accommodates different language translations for textual slides.
