Early Learning Guidelines

Early learning guidelines serve as a framework to capture some of the important aspects of development in the early years. They describe what young children know and can do during the early years of development. The guidelines are designed to give reasonable expectations for children at different ages so that teachers and others can have criteria to refer to as they observe children in action, determine their levels of performance and plan curricular interventions to help them grow, develop, and learn to their fullest potential.
