In addition, here are some educational and exploratory activities an early childhood educator should be learning about during their early childhood education curriculum:
– Setting up an open space of pop-up toys, brightly colored-balls, scarves, blocks and stuffed animals for infants to independently explore.
– Reading books, with visual and tactile pages.
– Providing music times where babies can clap their hands, tap a drum or move to songs.
– Taking infants outside to observe flowers, hear birds chirp and see chipmunks feeding.
– Allowing babies to smell different mediums such as vanilla, apple juice, grass and flowers.
– Continuously talking to each infant during personal care and activity times; this contributes to their language development.
– Echoing back when babies make sounds to emulate conversation.
