This archived webinar provides participating early childhood professionals with a structure they can use to make informed decisions about curriculum practices for infants and toddlers, and to highlight the newest component of the California Infant/Toddler Learning and Development System: California Infant/Toddler Curriculum Framework.
J. Ronald Lally and Peter Mangione, Co-Directors of The Center for Child & Family Studies at WestEd, explore the facilitation of infant and toddler learning by analyzing with participants specific documentations of infant and toddler behavior and teacher and supervisor adaptations to that behavior.
The purpose of these explorations will be to show how through reflective practice teachers and supervisors can:
- Deepen their knowledge of infant/toddler development and learning
- Learn to become researchers and facilitators as part of their roles as teachers or supervisors
- Guide the planning of learning experiences and environments for young children based on observation
- Create documentations that support learning and assessment
- Strengthen reflective supervision and practice
This archived webinar is the second in the archived series, Infant and Toddler Reflective Curriculum Planning. The series present principles, a planning process, and strategies to help teachers support children’s learning from birth to three years of age. The framework is based on current research on how to facilitate infant and toddler learning in four domains as described in the Infant/Toddler Learning and Development Foundations—social-emotional, language, intellectual, and perceptual and motor development.
The California Department of Education, Child Development Division, in partnership with WestEd’s Center for Child & Family Studies, hosted this webinar.
