1.1 Explain the pattern of development in the first three years of life and the skills typically acquired at each stage When working with babies and toddlers it has been stated to have a clear understanding of the developmental stages for the first three years of their lives, this is important because of how it will impact their development for the years to come after The first year, babies focus on exploring and learn about the things around them, at this stage learning language is about making sounds rather than words. Gradually they start listening, understanding and learning names of people and things that are in connection to their language development. Also during this stage babies begin developing bonds and trusts with parents/careers and others as part of social and emotional development. In their second year, toddlers begin using movement more, and are also beginning to be aware of themselves and the things around them. In this stage toddlers will start showing more independence.

Also babies have no concept of sharing with others, grabbing or snatching toys from other babies
