We can always be assured that change is constant, even in early childhood. Knowing this, we, in early childhood need to remind ourselves how children grow and learn has remained fairly constant.
In a recent training at Northwest AEA, a discussion was held about the Iowa Early Learning Standards (IELS) and the Iowa Core. Individuals and programs that have young children can and should be using this information to guide curriculum planning.
For more information about these standards, go to the Iowa Department of Education website and look under EARLY CHILDHOOD to find numerous resources and information vital to a high quality early childhood program.
