The Role of the Infant Care Teacher
“The teacher is all at once a nurturer, a guide, a supporter, an encourager, an observer, a planner, a provider of new experiences, a safe lap, and a listener.”
(Program Guidelines, p. 27)
(Program Guidelines, p. 30)
“Early care and education programs are important parts of communities. The programs play an essential role that is more than providing child care.”

Rationale: A paragraph or two explaining why the guideline is important
The provider is inside, in the kitchen, preparing lunch. The assistant is outside in the play yard with all of the 7 older children. The two younger infants are sleeping inside.
There is one potty chair outside in the yard and the assistant proceeds to place each of the 7 toddler-aged children on the potty one after the other. To each child she says, "Sit there until you pee."
The assistant does not use gloves during the diapering and toileting and there is no hand washing for the children or assistant. The potty chair is not sanitized between each child. Each child’s diaper is removed, before sitting on the potty chair, and the assistant places all of the diapers in the same plastic bag. During the diapering and toileting, the provider comes out once to bring more diapers to the assistant. Children are riding tricycles and playing around the child on the potty chair.
After diapering and toileting, the children sit down for lunch. After lunch, the provider uses the same washcloth to wash each child's face.
During my one-on-one feedback discussion with the provider, the provider mentions her son who is hitting and biting other children in her care. The provider asks if her assistant could attend the training as well.
