An infant refers to the stage from birth to the first year of life. Toddler years are from the child's first birthday up to about age 4 or 5.
In educational terms, infants become toddlers at 12 months, and toddlers become preschoolers as 2.9 years. These age parameters affect student:teacher ratios and class sizes, which is why the younger your child is, the more expensive is daycare--because the student:teacher ratio must be smaller, so the cost is greater to the daycare or preschool, and that is passed along to you.Lori Daywww.loridayconsulting.com
