Infant toddler identity formation
Caregivers can improve infant care outside the home by attending to issues of identity formation. Having an orientation that acknowledges the caregiver's role in an infant's identity formation would place the infant and the infant's work in proper perspective. United States
The baby's world
The role of the infant/toddler caregivers is to remember that each baby responds to the world in his or her own way and to respond sensitively to the each child's own way of experiencing the environment. United States
Creating inside learning environments for infants and toddlers
Physical spaces for infants and toddlers must provide them with a variety of interesting objects textures and physical challenges. A well designed indoor environment, as illustrated, will support child-initiated and teacher facilitated learning. New Zealand
Curriculum and planning: A responsive approach
Planning for work with infants cannot be static, it must be flexible and dynamic. In a responsive curriculum most planning has to do with caregivers preparing themselves and the environment so that infants can learn -- not in figuring out what to teach infants. United States
