Children's Programs - Babies and Toddlers

Planning for babies and toddlers occurs through relationship-based experiences and interactions. The emphasis is to promote and maintain a secure attachment between a child and their primary caregiver (see primary caregiving), then with the wider environment. Relationship-based programming recognises that children need to feel safe and secure in a predictable and responsive environment. Programs are dynamic and responsive to individual children's interests and intrinsically motivated purposes, taking into consideration a child's emerging sense of autonomy, agency, identity and belonging and opportunities to experience interdependence and independence.

Staff and families work in partnership to offer children potential pathways that are individually relevant and challenging. Various lenses are used to achieve a programming cycle of noticing a child's pusuits, behaviours and communication and striving to understand them in the context of the environment. Staff then plan to offer children opportunities to extend or repeat their learning and revisit past experiences. These lenses revolve around children's secure attachment and patterns of relationship and connection, their wellbeing and involvement in the environment and their primary caregiver's ability to be emotionally available to children as individuals.

Premature babies study

A protein free artificial surfactant (artificial lung expanding compound; ALEC) composed of dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylglycerol was assessed for its effect on the main complications of prematurity in a prospective two stage randomised trial of 328 unselected babies delivered at between 25 and 29 weeks of gestation. Babies were randomised to receive approximately 100 mg artificial surfactant suspension or 1 ml saline. This was given at birth into the pharynx with up to three more endotracheal doses if the baby was intubated during the first day. Treatment with artificial surfactant reduced the neonatal mortality from 27% to 14%, the incidence of parenchymal brain haemorrhages from 24% to 16%, and the severity of the respiratory distress syndrome. In the first 10 days babies treated with artificial surfactant who survived averaged 19 hours less in greater than 30% oxygen, 20 hours less ventilation, and 17 hours less supplemental oxygen. Artificial surfactant had no effect on the incidence of pneumothoraces, pulmonary interstitial emphysema, patent ductus arteriosus, or postnatal infections and no serious side effects. Artificial surfactant (ALEC) given to very premature babies at birth significantly reduces their mortality and the respiratory support needed and should prove a valuable addition to treatment.
