At WeeSchool, we are committed to giving all newborns the best possible start. That requires great parenting, and great parenting requires tools and resources that support sound, healthy development. Decades of academic research have provided profound insights into the nature of early childhood development and learning. The trick is turning those insights into practical, everyday approaches new parents can take to guide their child’s social, emotional, physical and cognitive development from birth to age 3.
That’s where we come in.
How we did it
We first scoured publications from trusted, nationally recognized institutions with a simple goal: To catalog what a child needs to know—and know how to do—to be successful in preschool. During our meta-analysis, we reviewed…
- National Association for the Education of Young Children Early
Childhood Program Standards (NAEYC)
- National Council for the Social Studies curriculum standards (NCSS)
- Head Start Child Development and Early Learning Framework (HSCD)
- California Infant/Toddler Learning and Development Foundations (CITL)
- Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)
- Colorado Early Learning and Development Guidelines (CELDG)
- Ireton Infant Development Inventory and Child Development Review (CDR)
- MacArthur-Bates Communicative Development Inventories (CDI)
