Module 03 Content

Their preliminary plan does not include following developmentally appropriate guidelines or quality best practices. You will create a fact sheet on one specific area that includes researched information on what is best for young children. Some topics may include quality curriculum, quality classroom environments, and educator qualifications.
You will create two fact sheets on developmentally appropriate guidelines or quality best practices for your state policy makers following the guidelines below. Each fact sheet should be 1-2 pages long.
