Through supportive relationships, infants and toddlers develop a sense of trust, learn how to interact with others, and how to eventually express empathy. Strong, nurturing relationships are key to healthy development for infants and toddlers. This professional development event will explore social emotional development within the context of relationships. Participants will learn how the process of getting in tune with children allows providers to offer responsive care, which in turn helps infants and toddlers form secure relational attachments. Secure and responsive relationships help young children to develop a strong foundation from which they can explore their environment.
