Getting Help from Erikson, Piaget, and Vygotsky: Developing Infant-Toddler Curriculum.
Gilbert, Jaesook L.
This paper asserts that infant-toddler teachers, like preschool teachers, need to be cognizant of individual children's developmental levels, chronological ages, and general developmental stages, as well as infant-toddler theories and developmentally appropriate practice for infants and toddlers. In that spirit, the paper describes the purpose and general aspects of a developmentally appropriate infant-toddler curriculum. The paper then discusses the relationship between infant-toddler development theories (such as those of Erikson, Piaget, and Vygotsky) and infant-toddler curriculum planning. A list is then provided of general questions for caregivers to use as they create a curriculum plan. The paper's last section provides a reference list of suggested reading on infant-toddler theories, developmental stages, and activities. (Contains 11 references.) (EV)
