Program for Infant Toddler Care (PITC): Learning and Development – Module 3
This session 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.
