Santa Cruz Toddler Care Center

1, 2, 3 ... The Toddler Years

After receiving many requests for written information about our philosophy and the effective methods we use at the Toddler Center, in 1986 we published

1, 2, 3 ... The Toddler Years .

Now in its second edition and third printing, 1, 2, 3 ... The Toddler Years is a 200-page book that describes respectful ways to work with toddlers. The book has been enormously successful both as a tool for educating caregivers and parent. It is used as a textbook in Early Childhood Education classes in over 100 colleges and is stocked in over 85 retail bookstores throughout the country.
