Healthy Beginnings is a resource for both parents and infant toddler educators. One of the primary resources on the site is the Activity Planner, which is a web-based application to help find activities to do with infants and toddlers that promote early learning. The activities are broken down by the child’s age, whether the activity will be done with a parent or care provider, and the setting where the activity will take place.
