The first five years of life is a period of rapid development for young children. Recent research supports that every child is born with well-developed senses and reflexes. Beginning at birth, young infants are able to form relationships with adults, develop trust, and explore the world. With adequate nutrition, an appropriate environment, and nurturing by responsive adults, young children become actively engaged in exploration and in learning about their environments. Each child’s special temperament and family context ensure that, while development will follow a somewhat predictable sequence,the child’s development will be unique.
This training will provide an overview of Florida’s Early Learning and Developmental Standards for Birth to Five (Form OEL-SR 30). Florida’s Early Learning and Developmental Standards is a comprehensive document containing age-appropriate information and reflections about how young children explore, create, and think. The Standards are grounded in Florida’s conviction that children’s early experiences are directly related to later success in school, in the workforce, and in life.
