Space to Grow: Creating a Child Care Environment for Infants and Toddlers (2nd Edition)

View Video Clip
The powerful influence of environments on infants and toddlers is described. Very young infants are limited in their ability to move away from an environment or to change one to their liking. The video demonstrates eight qualities for caregivers to consider when they are planning an environment for the care of infants and toddlers: health, safety, comfort, convenience, child size, flexibility, movement, and choice. The second edition updates health and safety information, addresses the needs of children with special needs and emphasizes the importance of relationships in infant/toddler care.

Also included with this DVD is a DVD Booklet.
