Responsive Planning for Infants & Toddlers

by Audrey Rowland MS, MBA

Do we need curriculum for infants and toddlers? What should their day look like? Am I supposed to teach them something? Infants and toddlers are working on big things: discovering their bodily powers, connecting and communicating with others, and figuring out how the world works. How do we create lesson plans that support the work they are already doing? In this session, we will discover how to plan for infants and toddlers: how to create lesson plans, how to structure the day, what types of activities are appropriate, and how to talk to parents about learning.
