Healthy Beginnings:  Supporting Development and Learning from Birth through 3 Years of Age

A resource to help you nurture the tremendous potential for learning and growth that every child has... that every child is born with.  Specifically designed for caregivers of infants and toddlers from birth through age three, Healthy Beginnings gives you knowledge and support around child care and child development, while our Activity Planner provides you with fun, developmentally appropriate activities that build young children's skills and promote all kinds of learning.

Healthy Beginnings may not be that long-missing instruction manual for child care, but it is a tool that can help you give the very best you can to the infants and toddlers in your life.
