Nebraska Early Learning Guidelines for Ages Birth to 3
Early Learning Guidelines for Infants and Toddlers: Recommendations for States, a 2008 report by ZERO TO THREE, drawing on the expertise of national and state leaders, offers recommendations and examples to states as they embark on an inclusive process to develop or refine research-based early learning guidelines for infants and toddlers.
This report focuses on the unique and foundational nature of the infant and toddler period and addresses issues related to both process and content. It is offered as a road map for states as they develop policies and programs that lay a strong foundation for child development and future learning through responsive, appropriate, and high-quality early experiences.
Nebraska’s early learning guidelines cover children ages birth to 3 separately from its preschool guidelines. These guidelines are available at http://www.education.ne.gov/OEC/pubs/ELG/B_3_English.pdf
