“The Infant/Toddler Curriculum developed by Patricia Hillman is an excellent tool to plan age and developmentally appropriate activities for very young children. The curriculum has a clear and easy to follow structure, and makes activity planning effortless. The lesson plan format is based on holistic approach to infant/toddler development, and designed to plan group and individual activities reflective of the outcome of individual child assessments. I highly recommend this tool to child development professionals working with infants and toddlers.” – Klara Pakozdi Head Start Director, UCR Child Development Center
