Foundations of Infant and Toddler Social Emotional Health and Development: Designed Especially for Parents and Family

Infant and Toddler social emotional health and development is a foundation of all development, involving a baby’s ability to express and regulate emotions, form positive relationships with others, and eagerly explore and learn. During the first 3 years of life, a baby’s brain develops more rapidly than at any other time. This development is shaped by the baby’s experiences with parents (and other primary family members)—your baby’s early experiences with you matter, and they last a lifetime.

Bradley’s Foundations course includes 10 computer-based modules that offer insights about a baby’s social emotional health and development, and it highlights the importance of positive early relationship experiences for healthy development.
