Early Learning Guides
You are your child’s first teacher. Parents have the greatest impact on their children’s life. The first three years of life are a time of rapid brain development and learning. This time becomes critically important for infants and toddlers as they develop the foundations for learning. The “Early Learning Guidelines for Infants and Toddlers,” were developed with the focus on relationships between all significant people in the child’s world.

Early Education & Care (EEC) and Davis have developed materials for parents which are inspired by these guidelines. You will find links to five printable brochures below. They focus on five different areas of development and contain things you can do every day to positively impact your child’s brain development.

Instructions for printing the brochures: Refer to your printer’s instructions on how to print the PDF on both sides of the paper. After the sheet has printed, hold it so that the “Things You Can Do...” side is facing up. Fold the sheet in half, the left side over the right, so that you are now looking at the title page. Open the sheet again and fold each end inwards until the edges of the paper meet right at the middle crease you just made; press down to make these two additional creases. You now have a brochure that opens in two steps. If you have printed on 8x11" paper, you may want to trim the top and bottom edges of the blank white space. The brochure is designed to be held and read in your hands, or kept open if you would prefer to display the recommended “Things You Can Do...” spread on your wall or refrigerator.
