Routines help infants and toddlers feel safe and secure in their environment.  Young children gain an understanding of everyday events and procedures and learn what is expected of them as routines make their environment more predictable.  Routines can also help infants and toddlers become more trusting of you as a caretaker if their routines are effective and they feel comfortable in the environment.
