The benefits of routine during childhood
Comforting and reassuring, routines are important for both children and their parents. These rituals allow families to develop expectations and stay on track. If not too rigid or overbearing, routines allow children to develop assertiveness, make choices and become more independent.
Tools for parents and caregivers
La Table de concertation petite enfance de Dorval-Lachine has created a series of 45 pictograms of practical and visual tools to facilitate learning about routines for bedtime, meals and getting dressed. These pictograms, targeted for the 0-5 year age group, can be found by clicking HERE
