Development Standards (TN-ELDS)

The Tennessee Early Childhood Education Early Learning Developmental Standards, or TN-ELDS, were first developed in 2004 to provide documentation of the continuum of developmental milestones from birth through age 5 based on the research about the processes, sequences and long term consequences of early learning and development.
