By now, you’ve likely seen many homeschooling schedules posted online for elementary school-aged kiddos. But what about those babies and toddlers? Routines and schedules are just as important to our littlest members of society, too.
According to the Zero to Three website, routines help babies and toddlers learn self-control, reduce power struggles, guide positive behavior and safety, support and develop social skills, and help children cope with transitions. Routines also help provide some semblance of normalcy during chaotic times.
It’s important to remember that when it comes to sleep schedules, each baby and toddler is different from the next but these baby and toddler sample schedules should get you started.
