By popular request, we are happy to provide a range of curriculum ideas "just for babies". The Aistear framework is intended to be from birth, so we should certainly not leave out the little ones in our Aistear-themed curriculum plans. Just for Babies engages the children with experimenting with physical movement, touch, stacking, language and many more important developmental areas.
