This hands-on session guides teachers and caregivers through every component of the expanded Creative Curriculum for Infants, Toddlers & Twos, a research-based, comprehensive curriculum that focuses on building warm, nurturing relationships with the youngest learners and intentionally promoting their development and learning in all areas. Participants first explore the three curriculum volumes to plan and implement meaningful routines and intentional experiences for all the children in a language-rich environment. To strengthen assessment skills, teachers will use Volume 3: Objectives for Development & Learning, Birth Through Third Grade to practice documenting their observations of young children and to plan for and scaffold their learning.
