Teaching Practices

Infant/Toddler Teaching Practices

For infants and toddlers, all learning happens within the context of their relationships with important adults in their lives. Education staff use effective teaching practices to:

  • Establish strong relationships with young children and their families
  • Create learning environments that foster children’s trust and emotional security and respond to their interests and needs
  • Support and extend children’s learning in culturally and linguistically responsive ways
