Choose the age-level classroom that is ideal for you (please be consistent throughout the course and choose the same age group): Infancy (birth -12 months), Toddlers (1-3 years), or Early Learning (4 -5 years). Please be sure to list your choice of age-level in the subject line of your discussion post.
