The first three years are a crucial time of a child’s development. Research on brain development indicates that the brains of infants and toddlers are twice as active as those of adults. More than half of California’s infants and toddlers are cared for in child care centers, in family child care homes, and by relatives or neighbors outside the home. Research shows that good care and education contribute to children’s social-emotional, language, cognitive, and perceptual and motor development. High-quality infant/toddler programs provide children with caring relationships, environments, and materials that enrich learning and development.
