Infant and Toddler Care and Development

The early years of life are very important. Children are developing at an extremely fast rate. Everything they interact with becomes a part of their classroom, including the people in their lives, the environment, and all of their experiences.

Parents, caregivers, and early educators need to know about each child's special qualities. Their temperament, strengths, and unique development are all part of what makes each child unique.
