Support children during their earliest, most critical years

Infants, toddlers, and two-year-olds grow best when they are loved, cared for, and valued as unique individuals. This book will help you provide children with high-quality care in a responsive learning environment. You will learn how to apply theories of child development to your own practices, build strong relationships with children, and support their social-emotional, physical, cognitive, and language development. You will also learn how your role in the lives of young children makes a tremendous difference in their growth and development.

The strategies and tips inside reflect six key principles:

  • Responsive caregiving is essential to children's growth and development
  • Trust is the cornerstone of healthy relationships
  • Children need stable and secure early care and learning environments
  • Children are ready and eager to learn
  • Play is central to children's learning
  • Responsive caregivers collaborate with families to support children's growth and development

Put these practices into action and support early learning with Activities for Responsive Caregiving: Infants, Toddlers, and Twos.

Review by: Patricia Wolfe, author of Brain Matters: Translating Research into Classroom - August 14, 2012
Given the plasticity of the early developing brain, caregivers play a critical role in the child's physical, intellectual, and emotional development. Needed is a resource that gives caregivers well-researched and practical examples on how to create an enriched environment for young children. This exceptional book, along with its companion volume, Activities for Responsive Caregiving, meets this need. It needs to be read by every early childhood educator, child care provider, and parent of children birth to two. Our children will be the beneficiaries.
