For additional information  regarding the field experience requirements and expectations, please  review the BSECS Field Experience Handbook found on the  BSECS Field Experience Website



Before submitting your Assessment, carefully review the rubric. This  is the same rubric the assessor will use to evaluate your submission and  it provides detailed criteria describing how to achieve or master the  Competency.

Review the key topics for this assessment and discuss them with your Host Teacher to gather their insights and thoughts.

Evaluating Routines and Transitions in Infant and Toddler Care and Education Settings

Before You Observe:


Your Observations

  • Make arrangements to observe in an infant and a toddler setting.
  • Share your assignment/goals with the Host Teacher in each setting. These include: 
    • o Use both the Infant Toddler Indoor Environment Observation  Worksheet and the Infant Toddler Outdoor Environment Observation  Worksheet as guides to observe indoor and outdoor environments for both  infants and toddlers. Be sure to take good notes, and record any  questions you may have and the information you seek about the  environments.
    • Engage in a reflective conversation with each Host Teacher about  your observation experience, sharing questions that came up for you and  areas about which you would like additional information. You may want to  focus on an area of the classroom environment that was particularly  effective in providing safety, a sense of security, and/or enhancing  development. You may have a question about something the teacher did or  said, a child’s reaction to something in the environment, and/or ways  the program hopes to improve.
