The growth and learning between birth and age 3 helps lay the foundation for all future development. The ways infants and toddlers think, play, and explore are unique to their development, and they depend on consistent and responsive relationships with caregivers to meet their specific needs.
Effective infant and toddler caregivers create programs that support all developmental domains and respond to each child's individual needs. Spotlight on Infants and Toddlers, a collection of articles from Young Children, provides relevant and current information for anyone who works with or in support of infants and toddlers and their families. We hope the articles offer you innovative ideas to try.
