Louisiana first revised the Early Learning Guidelines and Program Standards for children, birth to 3 years, in 2005. The guidelines were revised again in 2011. There is a separate set of guidelines for providers and parents working with three-year-olds. Most recently, Louisiana revised and expanded the Guidelines to cover early learning and development standards for children from birth through age 5 years.
The Guidelines describe Louisianas continuum of early learning and development standards or goals divided into objectives, which are composed of essential domains for school readiness. These domains include: social and emotional development; language development; cognitive development; and physical or motor development. These guidelines describe through the use of indicators what all children from birth to five should know and be able to do as well as their disposition towards learning. The indicators are accompanied by examples or strategies, which help caregivers to aide infants and toddlers in meeting development milestones.
