Infants, Toddlers and Caregivers is an ideal introduction to care and education in the first three years of life, featuring a respectful approach inspired by field pioneers Magda Gerber and Dr. Emmi Pikler. The text provides practical information based on theoretical and research foundations that students can implement in a variety of infant and toddler settings. At a time in early childhood education when school readiness and technological devices and screens for the very young are hot topics, this text focuses on the value of free play, the development of self-reliance, and the importance of responsive, respectful interactions.
