Continuity Of Care Practice In A University Lab School: What Are The Benefits And Drawbacks?
The purpose of my study was to explore the benefit of Continuity of Care (COC) and how COC impacts children’s academic, emotional and social skills. Also, I explored what is making the COC unsuccessful in some child centers. So, the present study used to answer the following questions: How COC will promote the relationship and attachment for young children? How is COC impacting in children development in an academically, socially and emotionally? What makes COC unsuccessful in some child centers? I used qualitative data that I collected through observation of the children ages two to three years old and who are enrolled in the COC program and the children who do not enroll in the COC. Also, I interviewed the teacher who has worked in COC since the beginning of the program, and I used a set of interview questions. The results were found that the COC impacts children positively in their academic, social and emotional skills. The practice of COC with long relationships will support the attachment for the children with their peers and teacher. However, the teacher’s ability and parent’s acceptance and their support can make COC unsuccessful to implement. The study concludes that COC benefits the children’s learning. Also, COC benefits on the teacher by letting her/him have the experience to deal with infants and toddlers. Key Words: continuity of care, looping, continuity of educational, caregiver, primary caregiver.
