Infants and toddlers (birth to 3 years):

The Creative Curriculum for Infants, Toddlers and Twos® simply creates a framework for how we:

  • Learn from and interact with each child and family

This framework allows us to foster the development of social/emotional, physical, cognitive, and language skills in each and every child.
