Scavo, Marlene; And Others
This document, one of a series for child caregivers working in military care centers, discusses ways of constructing appropriate environments for toddlers. Sections of part 1 focus on recognizing the influence of environments on children's feelings and behavior, coordinating the arrangement of space with the physical and psychological characteristics of toddlers, and using environmental features affecting children's moods and imagination. Sections of part 2 discuss meeting the individual and special needs of toddlers, encouraging development through play, and using materials in activities with toddlers. Checklists for assessing the center environment accompany each of the discussions in parts 1 and 2. Also included is a developmental checklist for assessing toddlers' skills. The final section of the module provides suggestions for acquiring resources to support caregiving activities. (RH)
