Hello everyone.  This week’s Around The Web puts a focus on early childhood development.  Take a look at two great resources.

Zero To Three

Zerotothree.org  I found this website a few years ago when my youngest was still a toddler.  It’s for professionals, policy makers and parents so the resources are kind of a mixed bag.  They have a “download of the week” on the right sidebar which is currently a handout on 24-30 months.  My favorite is the interactive “Baby Brain Map” just above that.  Try it out!

Cyfernet

Cyfernet.org  This website pulls together research-based information from universities on stages of development.  I’ve marked the early childhood section here, but you can look up other stages on here as well.  Good information about child care centers can help you research the options in your community and make a choice you are comfortable with.

There is just a plethora of information here, beyond just child care.  Safety, psychological wellness, childhood obesity – you name it.  And even though this Around The Web is focused on early childhood, there is information about other ages as well.

Thanks for your input on previous Around The Web issues.  Please share any feedback you have or make suggestions about family resources you value on the web.
