Overview

Creative Resources for Infants and Toddlers Series is a cluster of resources divided by child-care center and classroom criteria. This series explores child development at the critical stages of life such as predictable and universal patterns of development that occur in all domains, including physical, cognitive, language and communication, social, and emotional. The resources are arranged by age: Infant Resources: birth to 6 months, and 7 month to 12 months, and Toddler Resources: 13 to 24 months, and 25 to 36 months. Understanding developmental norms allows caregivers and parents to create and implement experiences that support and enhance the various levels of child development. With additional references, Web links, and on-line resources associated with each individual age group, Creative Resources for Infants and Toddlers Series provides all the information needed to understand the developmental needs of the child.
