Charting Progress for Babies in Child Care
Promote Continuity of Care
Information on child development:
- The Web site of the National Scientific Council on the Developing Child contains several publications on various aspects of child development, in the form of working papers, articles, and science briefs. Two recommended publications from the Council are:
- The seminal book, Neurons to Neighborhoods: The Science of Early Childhood Development, examines findings from neurobiology, behavioral sciences, and social sciences on the critical nature of development during ages 0-3 and presents recommendations on how society, policy, and practice can better support infants' and toddlers' healthy development.
- ZERO TO THREE focuses specifically on infants and toddlers and has a variety of resources on its Web site, organized broadly for professionals, parents, and policymakers, on topics such as child development.
