The focus of the Infant Development Program (IDP) curriculum is on the CHILD.  Stimulation activities are balanced across the important dimensions of activity (quiet or active), location (indoor or outdoor), and initiator (child-initiated or adult-initiated).  Teachers keep a good balance among the important dimensions equipped with the knowledge of where each child is on the developmental continuum.  Using observation and assessment techniques helps teachers match program and stimulation need to the developmental level of each child thus preventing frustration and insuring challenge.  Possibilities plans are designed to be expanded — keeping planning and implementation of curriculum fresh and new.
