Mixed age grouping provides emotional, cognitive, social, and physical benefits for young children in early childhood programs. Most teachers have been educated primarily in age based grouping practices and are not familiar with mixed age grouping. Teachers who are implementing a mixed age classroom will be better equipped if they are trained in defining mixed age grouping, the benefits of mixed age grouping, the environment of the mixed age classroom, teacher facilitation in the mixed age classroom, and family involvement. This project is intended to train teachers in these areas prior to implementation to assist in creating a developmentally appropriate mixed age classroom.
