Frances Carlson

Yet touch is as necessary as food or water for young children to thrive and grow physically, cognitively, socially, and emotionally. Experiences of touch in all its forms whether nurturing touch from adults, tactile explorations of the environment, or physical interactions with peers are essential to high-quality early care and education.
