Child care providers have a great influence on what infants and toddlers see, hear, touch, taste, feel, and smell while children are in their care. Since children learn through their experiences, it is important that the environments to which they have access are safe, responsive, and meaningful.
This 2-hour course examines several aspects of appropriate environments for infants and toddlers, including: Health and safety, space and furnishings, learning areas, outdoor play, creating language rich environments, the social emotional environment, and the structure of infant and toddler programs. This course was developed and produced by the Texas AgriLife Extension Service of the Texas A&M University System in cooperation with the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, Child Care Licensing Division, and using funds provided under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
