The Next Step: Including the Infant in the Curriculum

View Video Clip
"We made this video because we are concerned that many of the messages brought forth in From Neurons to Neighborhoods are being ignored. This video is an attempt to point out that all of us who are serious about assisting children to develop will do so by starting with the definition of an infant that the most recent research has given us: a curious motivated pre-programmed learner who is desperately in need of trusting and secure relationships as the base for both independent and interactive learning.

I am hoping the video can help people point out that the school readiness arguments of the next few years should bypass the empty topic of rigor and focus on whether initiatives are making accurate assessments of how children think and feel, and how their development can best be facilitated."
