Relationships: The Heart of Development and Learning

Relationships: The Heart of Development and Learning is one of three infant/toddler modules created to support consultants working in child care settings, especially consultants who have not had education or training specific to infants and toddlers in group care. These modules were designed to compliment training offered to early childhood consultants through the National Training Institute at the Department of Maternal and Child Health, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

The infant/toddler modules, which also include Infant/Toddler Development, Screening and Assessment and Infant/Toddler Curriculum and Individualization, provide content on early development and quality child care policies and practices for consultants working in child care settings serving children ages birth to 3. The modules do not include a focus on the development of consultation skills. As such, they are not intended to be used as stand-alone trainings but should be incorporated into training that also addresses the critical skills and process of consultation.
