Setting Up the Learning Environment for Infants and Toddlers Part 1
In your daycare center or program, what is the important thing in your children's environment? You are. As the caregiver for the day, you help the infant or toddler learn and grow in every developmental area just by being attentive and affectionate during routine activities.
The primary ways to this are to talk and read to the children and to support positive behavior.

- Teaching and learning
- Greetings and farewells
- Meals and art activities
- Diapering and toileting
