Within the security of trusting relationships, infants and toddlers develop curiosity, initiative, a sense of self, and a desire to explore their world. Adults can foster this development by responding to the young children in their care with care and respect. This program teaches how to create a climate of trust for infants and toddlers, form partnerships with children, and support children's intentions. It provides information on establishing program policies that promote continuity of care. It presents several extended, un-narrated scenes from HighScope settings illustrating strategies for developing supportive interactions with young children.
