    the way to serve is to show the children that you want to interact with what they are doing. By reaching out while using facial expressions that are positive and eye contact. As well as making the child feel heard and understood with the interaction you are having. In return, the caregiver will respond back to the child, laughing and having fun playing with the child’s interest.

    The early learning providers should make many options for children where they can explore and ask questions. showing them and letting them try it out by themselves but also letting them know that you are there incase they need help, making them feel comfortable asking for help. When early learning caregivers are sensitive and responsive to a young child’s signals and needs, they provide an environment rich in serve and return experiences. Because responsive relationships are both expected and essential, their absence is a serious threat to a child’s development and well-being.

    As teachers we can create a serve and return environment in their classroom by sharing the focus, supprting and encouraging, naming it, taking turns and practicing ending and beginnings.

    We have so many ways to create serve and return in a class room. It can be done through structured circle time or any time the child is serving to adult, the adult can respond friendly and positively.

    Based on the video “serve and return” can be done in nearly every aspect of the day. Playing and story time would probably be the easiest to incorporate it. Great idea.

    1. Provide a safe and predictable environment by establishing routines and consistent expectations for behavior. Also use positive reinforcement by acknowledging and praising positive behaviors, providing opportunities for children to make choices and problem-solve, and using positive language and tone.

    By following the 5 steps of Brain Building in what is called a serve and return we share the focus with a child by showing interest and attention in what the child is interested in.The seconds step is to support and encourage by saying something encouraging and with positive facial expression. Be engaging with that child. The third step is to name it.name what they see , do or feel. The fourth step is to take turns back and forth by helping with self control and interaction while being paitent. Lastly practice ending and new beginnings by sharing the focus as well as end one activity to start a new. an example of this could be circle time. which would allow all the children to be engaged and using most of this 5 step process.By following the 5 steps of Brain Building in what is called a serve and return we share the focus with a child by showing interest and attention in what the child is interested in.

    A great way to foster a serve and return environment is to continually introduce new things. Switch out some of the costumes in the costume bin, have a sensory bin in the classroom and swap the contents out every week, bring in new books on a regular basis, have a “try it tuesday” and offer kids new and interesting food or drink to explore. A childcare facility should be a place of stability, but there is always room to introduce new things for curious eyes, ears, and hands to discover.

    We can encourage this type of environment by, not only offering to help children but asking children for help in a developmentally appropriate way. If the children feel needed and supported, it is more likely that they will ask for and offer help to their classmates.

    arts and crafts are a great time for them to spark their interest and imagination to ask them what they are making or see

    Early learning providers can create a “serve and return” environment in their classroom by encouraging interaction, following the children’s lead, and being active in engagement. Encouraging interaction allows opportunities for children to engage in back-and-forth interactions. Following the children’s lead means paying attention to their interests and preferences and creating interactions based on how the child is playing. Actively engaging in play with children creates a sense of connection and shared experiences.

    If a child hands me a doll and asks me to help dress or undress them I can provide assistance.

    How do you think early learning providers can create a “serve and return” environment in their classrooms?

    By having interactions with what the children are interested in. So if there is a child who is interested in the kitchen set then show the child that you are interested as well. Acknowledgment is important to them. Take your time with their interest.
