Utah’s Early Learning Guidelines – Early Childhood Indicators of Progress

The years from birth to three are thought to be the most important years when it comes to human development. The things that a child learns in those first years will be the foundation of lifelong learning. Infants and toddlers are cared for, nurtured, and educated in a variety of settings, including:
• Their own homes;
• Family, friend and neighbor homes;
• Family child care homes;
• Child care centers; and
• Specific education programs.
Utah’s Early Learning Guidelines for Birth to Three will help families, childcare providers, people in the community, and policymakers to support the best learning and development for young children
