Metadata[+] Show full item record
Early childhood is a critical period for cognitive, linguistic, and social-emotional development. Research finds that children who attend high quality infant and toddler programs are better prepared to succeed in school and in the workforce than those who did not attend. Thus, the quality of infant and toddler programs has great implications for children's development. One of the tasks of a survey was to examine infant and toddler workforce issues and program quality.
