Nevada Infant and Toddler Early Learning Guidelines

The Nevada Infant and Toddler Early Learning Guidelines (ELG) have been developed for early childhood professionals as well as parents. This document was developed so that the adults who are caring for infants and toddlers can have a set of appropriate developmental guidelines that they can refer to for information and resources. The guidelines can be used as a frame of reference for children but it is important to remember that each child develops differently so the age ranges should be used as a suggestions. The activities that are recommended can be provided by the caregiver or parent to help support the learning. Infants and toddlers grow and develop rapidly so it is important to mention that different milestones can be occur at different times and stages in a child‟s development can change quickly. The use of these guidelines will support the use of best practice approaches in infant and toddler programs.
