Module 3: Learning and Development

December 8, 2021 @ 6:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Presenter: Casey Craft-Cortes, YWCA Infant Toddler Specialist & ITN Trainer

This module explores brain development, early learning and language development, and appropriate curriculum planning for infants and toddlers. PITC’s view of infants as active, self-motivated learners is explained and the role of caregiver in supporting infants’ desire for exploration is considered.  The perspective that is presented can be summed up in the following way: “All children are born wired for feelings and ready to learn” when provided nurturing relationships and a peaceful but engaging environment that supports all learners, including infants with special needs. Engaging discussion and activities support participant’s learning.

This is a hybrid training. Participants must complete the face to face session and online assessment to receive credit
