INFANT/TODDLER CHILD DEVELOPMENT The overarching goals of Early Head Start focus on the healthy cognitive, physical, social, and emotional development of infants and toddlers. Research on early brain development has demonstrated that, to thrive, children from birth to age three need a variety of positive learning experiences provided in a secure and loving environment.
