AIM

Quality infant and toddler programmes must stem from an understanding of their developmental needs
and an appropriate infant & toddler curriculum must support such needs. This specialized professional
workshop aims therefore to equip participants with knowledge of child development during the 0 to 3
years. This theoretical understanding is critical for the provision of responsive and positive care
giving, and lays the foundation for the design of a play environment that is respectful of the infant and
toddler development.
