Commissioner Killins and the Department of Early Education and Care are very pleased to announce that EEC’s Early Learning Guidelines for
Infant and Toddler Development are now posted on EEC’s website at the following link Click Here.
Research underscores the critical foundation these early years provide for each child’s future success and the importance of intentional
learning experiences to their healthy growth and development. The Guidelines provide a comprehensive view of infant and toddler
development with suggested experiences to support each stage of development. The Guidelines have been reformatted into a searchable
PDF file so they are easy to use. These Guidelines reflect the input from our field including experts who guided the course of their
development and many of you who participated in focus groups and on-line surveys.
Thank you for joining EEC in this important work.
