This teacher guide is also a wonderful tool for parents of homeschoolers and other parents in need of ideas or interested in trying out fun things at home that focus on the developmental ages and stages of your children.

Infant QuickSource®

Mom and Child

Observe and identify developmental stages for infants. Find experiences that help reinforce and support developmental milestones, aiming to build the foundation of learning. Infant caregivers must understand that all essential guidelines for infants revolve around the domains of language, cognitive, social/emotional and motor development. Exploration, perception, communication, mobility, self-competence, trust, relationships, independence, and impulse control (beginning around 18 months) are all developmental goals for infants. This invaluable, easy-to-use resource provides comprehensive support across eight domains of emergent learning for children from birth to 18 months.

Children from birth to age three are in the most critical period for language development. Children in the toddler years are active explorers and need many small and gross motor activities as well as opportunities to problem-solve. Because this is a prime age for building connections within the brain, language, cognitive skills, social emotional development and physical development are the four areas of focus for the toddler group. The developmental guidelines in this QuickSource are categorized into eight learning domains. At all times, however, the guidelines provide an emphasis on the four areas above.
