Infant and Toddler Guidelines

Professor Mary Lu Love, M.S.

Course Structure: Flexible Modules; Total Hours: 15

Course Description

This course will provide opportunity to use the Massachusetts Early Learning Guidelines to support your work with infants and toddlers. The first three years of life area a time of rapid brain development and learning. This time is critically important for infants and toddlers as they develop foundations for learning. The purpose of the Early Learning Guidelines (ELG) for Infants and Toddlers is to provide a comprehensive view of the development of infants and toddlers while documenting experiences that support this development.

This course is based on the Massachusetts Early Learning Guidelines for Infants and Toddlers, available on line at: http://www.eec.state.ma.us/docs1/Workforce_Dev/Layout.pdf and Incorporating the MA Early Learning Guidelines for Infants and Toddlers in Your Program: a Study Guide developed by The Institute for Education and Professional Development.
