Baby Curriculum Ideas

You can put water and soap into your water table. Add some plastic babies, washcloths, bottles, bottle brushes, etc. The children can wash babies or baby dishes as they desire.

When doing a baby theme, you can convert the housekeeping center into a ‘nursery’ Add bibs, highchairs, baby dolls etc.

Invite a parent with a real infant to visit the classroom. Before hand, encourage the children to create questions that could be asked. Allow the children to watch as the infant is fed.

On the first day of the unit, I bring in a very small baby from our infant room. We talk about the baby’s needs and characteristics. The next day I bring in a bigger baby and discuss the same topics. I continue on introducing the next age baby during circle for the entire week.
