Description

There is no time more valuable for development in the human lifespan than the critical first years. In infant classrooms, daily experiences focus on developmental domains or on the practice of a specific skill (infant accomplishments) and are prepared around spontaneous activities that are likely to occur in the context of daily care and routines. The Complete Resource Book for Infants is a collection of experiences and activities that maximize learning and development for children from birth to eighteen months. Experiences and activities are designed to support language, motor, social, emotional and cognitive growth and development. Activities are structured around the windows of opportunity as defined by early brain development research. The first three years of life lay the foundation for lifelong learning. The child’s brain is busy wiring the foundation for vision, emotional stability, language development, motor development, thinking skills, and much more. Activities can be used randomly or organized to focus on a specific skill or aspect of development.
