In Linda S. Anderson’s article, “Building Empathy, Strengthening Relationships the Benefits of Multistage Classrooms and Their Caregivers”, she explains the benefits and challenges of multistage classrooms for infants, toddlers, parents, and teachers. Early relationships are very important in order to develop meaningful relationships later in life. That is why parents give top priority to the multistage classes because they develop strong relationships with various age groups of children and providing several types of opportunities, such as positive emotional experiences, shared joy, and feelings of comfort, development of responsiveness, stronger attachments, and healthy social and emotional understandings. It also allows for children to remain with the same teacher and some of their classmates throughout the first three years of their lives, which increases healthy, secure relationships for these children. In multistage classrooms, trust is established between the caregivers, families, and due to this, teachers also become more able to understand the beliefs and rituals of all families which makes sharing daily routines easier. Moreover, Anderson explains the domains for setting up safety, caring interactions, space, time, and security may be difficult for the caregivers in multistage classes because every child has individual needs. Due to this, the teacher develops skills and proper knowledge about how to overcome these problems when they arise.
