    I found these two WACs as an example;

    1. WAC 170-295-2040
    You must:
    (2) Guide the child’s behavior based on an
    understanding of the individual child’s needs
    and stage of development

    2. WAC 110-300-0330
    (1) An early learning provider must work to
    maintain positive relationships with children by
    using consistent guidance techniques to help
    children learn. Guidance techniques must adapt an
    early learning program’s environment, routines,
    and activities to a child’s strengths, developmental
    level, abilities, culture, community, and relate to the
    child’s behavior.

    Both of these WACs are pretty broad, but they tell us to teach with the individual child in mind, we need to make sure we are catering to every single child that walks into our care.
