Working with Multi-Aged Groups

Course Number
Children grow and learn naturally in multi-age groups. However, we recognize that it can be challenging to balance safety, active learning, and the particular needs of each child.  As an early care provider, this course will help you discover strategies and best practices for working with multi-age groups of children, and plan activities that meet the individual needs of each child in your care.   You may already be using some of the practices that we’re going to talk about, and we hope this course will be a good reminder to keep doing so. Other strategies might be new to you or might not be the way that you’re used to doing things. We encourage you to take notes along the way and be ready to try something new with your multi-age group.

This course is divided into five modules, each with its own set of objectives and exercises as follows:

  • Module 1: Introduction to Teaching Multi-Age Groups (35 min)
  • Module 2: How Children Learn at Each Age (55 min)
  • Module 3: How to Use the Learning Guidelines (10 min)
  • Module 4: Setting Up Your Learning Environment (15 min)
  • Module 5: Adapting and Planning Activities for Multi-Age Groups (50)

You’ll need to complete each module in order before being able to move on to the next.

There’s also a Handouts Module which contains supplemental handouts, resources and weblinks that you can access at any time.
