Ms Gabi & Ms Rebecca's Class - Infants 1
During the month of July, we explored different types of weather and its effects of rain to rainbows, to snow, to mud, etc. With all the rain we got, there was plenty of opportunity for the infants to engage with a new environment. They went outside to play in the rain, and it was a sight to see! From wet grass to mud, it was quite a sensory experience, and the littles love it all.
Moving forward in August, we will be looking at farms and what types of animals live on a farm. We will also begin to focus on temperament in Infants and Toddlers. Temperament describes the way in which he/she approaches and reacts to the world around them, and every child’s temperament is unique to him/her. A family can have 3 children, and each will have their own temperament. With changes to family dynamics & routines, understanding a child’s temperament can help families better support how children react and relate to situations. At home, try some different activities within your daily routine that you haven’t done with your little ones before and see how they react. Are they flexible or cautious about the change? Knowing this will help you provide a better experience for your child when facing a new situation.
Below are the temperament types. See if you can determine what type of temperament your child has. We know we are excited to learn more about your children’s temperament and how we can provide a quality experience for each of them.
Easy or Flexible
Active or Feisty
Slow to warm or cautious

**Note: Nationally, more than half (55 percent) of infants display at least one characteristic of a difficult temperament most of the time, suggesting that many of these characteristics are common. In fact, 22 percent of infants displayed two or more of these characteristics most of the time.
