Babies have families. Families love their babies!

More, More, More! Said the Baby-Vera B. Williams

We will use the wooden people and animals to create different kinds of families!


There are babies all over the world. In some places, babies are carried in a special basket.

Up! How Families Around the World Carry Their Little Ones-Susan Hughes

We will put babies in different kinds of baskets and take them for a walk around our center today.


Families take care of their babies. They play with them, feed them, dress them, and wash them.

Global Babies

We will give our babies a bath in soapy water today. We will use different tools like sponges, washcloths, and loofahs to wash them.  


Some families have one baby. Some families have more than one.

Everywhere Babies-Susan Meyers

We will work with colored people and houses today.


Every baby is different. Every baby is special!

A Ride On Mother’s Back: A Day of Baby Carrying Around the World-Emery Bernhard

We will have a baby dressing station in our room today. We will work on getting our babies dressed and taking care of them.

Changes to the Environment

We will feature a nursery in the dramatic play area. For sensory work, we will search for shaped buttons in rice. Art this week will be finger painting at the tables. For construction work, we will use the hollow blocks. For large motor play, we will follow lines on the floor and crawl like babies. Small motor play will be pegs and peg boards.
