Definition: Generally refers to anything that falls into the range of appropriateness for a given age of child. Includes toys, curriculum, behavior and skills. Often child care providers will refer to activites as age-appropriate. Sculpting with clay would be age-appropriate for children of preschool age, but not for infants.
