A basic introduction to child development theories - Centre for Learning Innovation. A short summary of our favourite child development theorists
The Center on the Developing Child’s diverse activities align around building an R&D (research and development) platform for science-based innovation, and transforming the policy and practice landscape that supports and even demands change. We do this because society pays a huge price when children do not reach their potential, because half a century of policies and programs have not produced breakthrough outcomes, and because dramatic advances in science are ready to be used to achieve a promising future for every child.

Taking the Talk resource aims to help professional and community workers to provide opportunities
for families to:
• begin talking about their stories of their children’s development while the worker listens.
• continue telling these stories as their children develop from being a baby, to a toddler and then
throughout their childhood years.
• explore opportunities to support their children’s development through play and learning.
