Oklahoma has more infants and toddlers needing licensed child care than there are available providers to care for them. This curriculum is designed to address Oklahoma’s critical need for child care providers with specialized training and skills in infant and toddler development. As part of this curriculum plan, students complete three courses that address infant and toddler programming and care. This curriculum is intended to prepare students not currently working in child care for positions in programs serving infants and toddlers, or help current infant and toddler providers advance on their career ladder.
