True Then, Truer Now

What Every Early Childhood Educator Should Know

Proceedings of The Gesell Institute’s Summer at the Institute
July 26, 2016

The Gesell theory of maturational development still remains relevant today, on the 65th Anniversary of the Gesell Institute of Child Development.

Recent research confirms that children still grow and learn, along the same stages defined by Arnold Gesell over a century ago.

But the world has not remained quite so predictable.

Educators of young children were invited to join the Gesell Institute of Child Development and colleagues for a day of inquiry into the importance of understanding the tried and true ages and stages of child development in the new early childhood of toxic stress, learning standards, and ever growing challenges to safe, stable, nurturing environments for all children.
