Healthy Beginnings: Maryland's Guidelines for Healthy Child Development and Care for Young Children (Birth to Three Years of Age)
Healthy Beginnings is designed to help caregivers tap the amazing potential for learning and growth that all young children have. The site offers resources, knowledge, and support around child care and child development.
Maryland Healthy Beginnings is a resource for caregivers—including parents, teachers and child care providers—of infants and toddlers from birth through age three. Healthy Beginnings is designed to help caregivers tap the amazing potential for learning and growth that all young children have. The site offers resources, knowledge, and support around child care and child development.
One of the primary resources on the site is the Activity Planner, which provides fun, developmentally appropriate activities for young children. The activities are broken down by the child’s age, whether the activity will be done with a parent or care provider and the particular setting where the activity will happen. This great tool for everyone who spends time with young children has recently been updated and enhanced and can now be used in both desktop and mobile-based versions.
