Resumo: Curriculum in the Infant/Toddler Care Centres may be understood as a essential part of the individual learning process and may be considered as stemming from community’s attitude towards earl childhood and, specifically, towards the age period starting from 24 to 36 months of the age during which children are in infant/toddler care centres. Growing concerns about the quality of the curriculum in the infant/toddler care centres are expressed through the growing number of these centres open to the public and through a progressive standardization of the profissional training of child care providers. The main aim of this study was to analyse the curriculum in Infant/Toddler Care Centres and the quality of that curriculum. Specific aims were: to discriminate sorts of curricula used nowadays and to clearly identify road and training needs of professional child care providers so that curriculum in infant/toddler child care may have the maximum quality possible. The study was conducted inside Lisbon’s urban area and involved nine Infant/Toddler Care Centre institutions with diverse pedagogic practices. Nine infant/toddler care providers in activity were required to participate in the study, given they were presently working with children from 24 to 36 months of age. Data were collected through a semi-structured interview and through observation regarding ITERS-R items defined by Harms, Cryer and Clifford (2003) and were processed according to content analysis and statistical procedures. Data showed that professional infant/toddler care providers should be socially recognized as they work in Infant/Toddler Care Centres and that curriculum quality should be always closely associated with global infant/toddler care services.
