Infants and Toddlers
How do you provide care for your youngest while nurturing their growth and development?
The answer is often found in the curriculum. The curriculum you choose, and the quality of how you implement that curriculum, affects the quality of care for those infants and toddlers. Choosing a curriculum that fits the needs of your infants and toddlers, their families, and, of course, you, is a very important decision that requires careful consideration.
Research based and child focused, the HighScope Infant-Toddler Curriculum uses a carefully designed process of learning through discovery, called active participatory learning. During active learning, caregivers encourage infants and toddlers to discover the world around them by exploring and playing. Learning and development are anchored by long-term, trusting relationships with caregivers, who are close at hand to support children as they play.
